"Taking a chance" 6"x6" oil on gessoboard

To purchase, please contact me. $100

Nosey decided to take a chance and tiptoe through the marble mine field so that he could take a peek inside the top drawer of the cabinet that the Giant liked to use.   "Surely there is cheese in there, why else would the Giant have any interest in it.  Drat! It is something called charcoal pencils and doesn't smell anything like cheese!"  Nosey was very disappointed and now she has to go back through the mine field! 

In this painting I broke from my usual color scheme and used muted colors.  I rather like it and it makes the glow of the marbles seem bright.  I don't think it would look like a cabinet except for the detail in the lower right corner.  The bronze mouse is a sculpture from Steve Worthington, to view more of his sculptures click here for his blog.
