La Pavoni

"La Pavoni"
oil on board, 8x10"
commissioned work

I have been working on this for a friend of mine. It's one of those beautiful Italian hand pump espresso makers that I wish I owned... Maybe if I paint a few more of these, I'd have enough money to buy one... I love a latte. Perfect for an after Christmas coffee.


  1. Beautiful job, Kristen. I am as usual awed by your ability to paint both reflective surfaces and shine.

  2. These reflections are incredible. Great job.

  3. Wow! This is so the reflections, the background colors, the composition. The crisp metallic highlights are no easy thing to accomplish but you've done a wonderful job!

  4. So, so wonderful Kristen. This is my first time to visit your blog and I've had such a great time poking around. I love your color choices and compositions. We have some things in common... I love doing mosaics for the garden and painting furniture too! I look forward to watching - Happy New Year.
