"Through my paintings I hope to communicate a personal enthusiasm and respect for the natural world, thus encourage in others an active stewardship of same." -- JEANNE ILLENYE

 Wallace Grand Baroque Sterling Silver Knife
Triptych Center Panel
30x20 inches / oil on canvas
I've selected the antique version of these flatware pieces as they all feature a different flower, whereas the newly manufactured pieces are all the same less refined rose.  This antique knife features the roses and buttercups.  I love the soft color of the background as it has a suede like quality.  Keep checking back as I'll have the spoon and fork done soon.

Great piece!! Can't wait to see the entire piece put together.


Thank you so much, Gail. I always love painting silver, particularly antique flatware such as this classic pattern. Keep checking for the fork and spoon!
