Spoon with Tipped Mug

6"x4" oil on gessoed door skin. When this painting came to life, the spoon was not there. I walked away fully intending to be finished with it, but it would not let go of me. It was a perfectly fine painting, but something was missing. You know how it is when something just sticks in your mind and gnaws at you? Well, this was gnawing at me and then BAM, it occurred to me to throw in the spoon. Thankfully, I had not broken down the set up, because you can't just mystically put a chrome spoon in. Chrome can be a wicked partner and it knows when you are faking it.
