Cutlery Painting, Silver on Silver: One of Each, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair

Silver on Silver: One of Each
8x10 oil on canvas

You may  remember my fascination with tin-foil and the series of cutlery paintings I created a few months back?  Various pieces placed on tin-foil catching the light, creating little vignettes of  shimmering silver... they seem to glow in the dark.

The series is  displayed side by side in my studio/gallery room,  a line-up of silver reflections to brighten up a dull grey snowy day.   I can envision a grouping of them hung next to stainless steel appliances, or a glass dinning table, or displayed along a hall that leads to the kitchen...  Let your imagination be your guide!

Oil Painting of a Calla Lily, White Swirl, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair

White Swirl
10x10 oil on canvas

I had an art patron stop by last week for a peek at my paintings... she left with 8 under her arm, and a smile on her face!  The Holiday Season will soon be upon us... and she is now ahead of the game, picking up a few gifts for people on her list.  Of course we always find gifts for ourselves as we shop for others... and she was no exception...

Thank you 'Ms. Patron' for supporting the arts!

Of course I still have a number of paintings hanging in my studio/gallery... like this one.

The Holidays are just around the corner!
