Very nice, as usual! Great warm tones.

Where do you find all this stuff? You must have an enormous collection of still life props by now!

Thanks Tim- Most of the items are from Ebay- but only at bargain prices! I have quite a good collection of props and I also borrow items from the friendly local antique shop.
Cheers, Gary

Another veritable masterpiece, Gary. Your work never fails to delight and impress. Glad you use a Pentax otherwise we might never have got to know what you can do!
Best wishes,

Andrew

Excellent image, and the use of of the term masterpiece is well judged. I am intigued as to the symbolism (religious?)of the various artefacts, would be interested to know if you can find the time to explain.

Another unmistakable still life from the undisputed master of the form. Great work as usual. Your work always reminds me of the Flemish and Dutch Old Masters.In fact I would place your work as a modern version of this school of painting.
