The Daily Paintworks Challenge this week is "stripes". So here you have it: stripes. I fas feeling an urge to use lots of color (maybe following the last post's pale palette?) Note the reflection of the blue/purple glass in the base of the cup at the left. These are the kinds of things that excite me in a still life. Often I don't see them at first, but when you're looking really really closely at all the colors, they reveal themselves.
