This is an oil study of a beautiful silver communion chalice used in my local church.
On 20th August I completed a 24 hour sponsored paintathon to raise funds for a church reordering project. Before the actual event I completed several studies - this is one of them. I was delighted to hear people say they felt that they could pick it up - that was exactly the aim of the study, to produce something that 'felt' as real as if it was in my hand.
It is framed in a carved wooden frame in a rich cream, complete with hanging hook and pins.
Please note price increase on 17.10.2016 reflects a more suitable and higher quality frame.
