A Gift of Honey
(12" x 12", oil on canvas)

Using a slightly higher point of view gave the honey more colour and depth, because the light passes through the jar and bounces back off the light fabric. This angle also gave me the opportunity to work more interest into the fabric, playing up shadows and the raw edge of the linen. Although a very simple subject, I believe there is plenty of interest in this small canvas to keep the viewer engaged.
