I love this! We found an old, old trivit (sp) in an antique shop the other day to house our old flat iron we use as a back door stop. I never thought about sketching or painting them before...what a great idea!

OOOOH, I LOVE this... particularly the shape and composition. I have a similar key and enjoyed painting it - I love your treatment of the metal in this series!

Jala you definitely have a distinctive style with these stills, and I LOVE them. The gray background is brilliant.

Jala, I love the dominant dark idea, nice and mysterious, and sort of medieval looking. Very dramatic, beautiful painting.

You really got the metallic feel. Great painting!

I love the key and amazed at the background and the courage to leave what looks like the ground showing. It just adds so much character to the subject. r.

Wonderful simplicity! Love the shadow and the brass is painted to perfection. I like the rough background too. Adds to the "antique" feeling.
