The Silver Thimble

The Silver Thimble

Oil on gallery wrapped canvas, 14x11x1" $150 Sold

With this painting I tried to limit my palette and to work with several items that don't have much reflective quality. The two pairs of scissors are matte and yet have wonderful colors. Same thing with the folded fabrics, but the threads and their little porcelain container had a sheen and a glow. Yet, next to the shiny silver thimble, it is clear what is the center of the composition.

I don't know why it has taken me so long to think to use sewing supplies as my still life subject matter. Duh! I am so glad it finally happened.


  1. Could a line of printed postcards, inspired by your sewing supply still life painting, be far behind?

  3. LOL! When your page first came up I thought "Oh good! She's back to quilting"!!!! This is amazing! I'm sure it will be sold in a very short time. It would be so beautiful in someone's quilting studio....or anywhere else!

  4. Silly me... I never would have thought that your sewing supplies would stay still long enough for you to paint them! ;->

  5. The colors are stunning!

  6. If this is a piece with something completely new, you better keep it and not sell it! It is wonderful, and what I love most are the yarn spools.

  7. Great share!
