Candlelight Treasure

Candlelight Treasure  unframed oil 6" x 6"  $100.  SOLD

For days now I've had this arrangement set up on a beautiful, pine, wall-mounted shelf unit which a friend made for me many years ago.  I procrastinated painting it thinking that it wasn't all that exciting.  However, today as this one poured off my brush I could see that I was mistaken ... I'm very pleased with how it turned out.

For the record, I didn't light the candles until the very end.  I wondered if this would alter the lighting in the painting, but it didn't, really.  There was 7" between the higher flame and the shelf above.  Although it didn't take me long to paint the flames, it was enough time to leave a burn mark on the shelf above.  Whoops!
