English Beauty



English Beauty
Oil on gessoed board
145x150mm
$300 Sold

I painted this one over the last few days. I always find it a challenge, and an interesting conundrum, depicting a three dimensional object on another three dimensional object on a two dimensional picture plane, while at the same time keeping in mind that the painting, (and the paint), is a three dimensional object itself. Keeps me happily amused anyway.
English Beauty is the name on the bottom of the cup.
