Painting is always a process of discovery on some level. I generally know how things will work out from the beginning, but sometimes there are surprises along the way. A small but beautiful surprise happened when I painted the highlight at the top of the handle. That small dab of white paint instantly brought a drab passage to life. It was kind of a magic moment for me.

This is painted on a prepared block of poplar wood, and set in a deep-format black frame; please see below for an image.
