Red Candle - A Work in Progress

Junkyard has finally returned, although he has shed a couple of pounds he is alive and his leg seems to be healing. He has become a lot shier but I was still able to touch him before he ran away, so I put food out for him and he did eat.

The morning started off overcast, but with everything coated in white frost. The trees were a wondrous sight to behold and I wanted to stay home and take photographs, but I had to head down to KAGS for the still life class.

The theme for the class was candlelight.

We had two different displays set up. One was a single amber coloured glass candlestick with three pears.

The other was a collection of various candle holders in everything from glass, porcelain, clay, stained glass, crystal and brass. I chose to work on a single candle in a holder of crystal and pewter from the collection.

I will post this painting at a later date.

After the class I sat the "Free Expressions" show in the Gallery.

When it was time for me to head home the weather had warmed and it turned out to be a fairly nice, sunny day with the temperature climbing to 24F (-4.5C)

Thank you for coming to look at my artwork.
