Shawnee Salt & Pepper ... Painting viewed on easel with pottery shakers still life setup. "Sailor Boy" and "Little Bo Peep" immortalized in oils.

Shakers are shown in the art studio with the easel setup.

The lighting and angle is different than in the actual painting...... and you can't see that they are missing their cork stoppers. As a child I actually played with these as a special treat whenever I was ill in bed so they never "made it as shakers" but admired on the what-not shelf.

Isn't it wonderful to take the ordinary and elevate it to portrait status? After all these are heirloom treasures though tattered with age.
