This is a petite composition done specifically for an upcoming show with size limitations. I found it difficult to crop my reference photo and even more of a challenge to paint a six-inch-square format. So it is just a piece of the larger design I had planned originally — I may get to that another time!  I set up a casual still life with my brush collection, glassware and license plates.  The foreground focus is the two-inch wash brush and a couple of old bristle brushes for oils.  The design also has a piece of the numeral five, which is coincidentally in another painting in progress. I find it strange to have certain symbols popping up again and again in my designs. I do not plan that to happen, and it is a continuity that ties my paintings together.
