Tulips & Pewter

This is the last painting in my Southpaw Project. I started it with my left hand and finished it with my right. During the first week in March, I got the ok to remove my splint and begin using my right hand. Yeah!

The tulips and pewter reminded me of a traditional Dutch still life. I decided to use a dark background and white drape to strengthen that idea. I've had this coffee pot for a number of years. I like its swirling sculptural form, but have had problems painting it in the past. This time I think I was able to capture it.
