I love the copper and especially the reflections. Including that on the apple. So cute. And so very attractive!

My pastel teacher said something before I painted this that sparked an "aha" moment for me.. she said that reflective surfaces are like and abstract painting in a recognizable shape. So, within that copper pot is an abstract painting! You can see the reflections of the windows and the other students in there somewhere. Now I'm searching for more reflective stuff to paint.... she's created a monster.

What a cool idea! I'll have to remember about the abstract reflections. It's true -- it's what we see -- depending upon how curved, convoluted, or distorted the item.

all of a sudden I "get" abstract painting! Might even do one myself...
