Carrying on the theme of "Tools of the Trade," our class assignment was to paint this still life. While I've used a number of these items, I have to admit that I haven't had occasion to use a paint roller on anything other than a wall at this point in my career. I guess it's something to which I should aspire!? It could happen -- just probably not with watercolor. Lots of different textures and surfaces in this painting -- so it was a good exercise.
