14. Petite Iron

"Petite Iron"
8 x 8 Inches
Oil on Gesso Board

I purchased this petite little iron at one of the many antique shops in Old Town Clovis. 
While small, it presented a pretty big challenge when it came to rendering the subtle hints of color 
in all the grays. I placed the iron on a piece of glass to get these reflections. The glass had just 
a hint of green in it which created some interesting colors in the reflections. Overall I'm pleased with the outcome. I plan on revisiting subject matter similar to this, but for now my next piece will have LOTS of color and probably some simple organic shapes!
