Textures, sheen, reflections, colour all are rendered very simply in this work. A pewter stein is high lighted along with fresh green asparagus and a battered pewter plate as a backdrop. The string in the original setup was white, but the asparagus was calling out for a dash of red. This painting recalls a time when come dusk there was no light other than illumination from candles.







Only high quality professional grade materials and paints were used in this artwork. The artwork is varnished (Gamvar) and the sides are painted.
