Day 132 Incense Burner?

Ned's Thing-a-ma-jiggy
Oil on Gessobord
6 x 6
Okay, upon closer inspection I now know it's not a vase. It's
certainly not a teapot (now I feel very silly for even thinking that).
Could it be an incense burner? I think I may just have to ask Ned.
This is the same still life set up as yesterday, just closer and
painted on a different surface. It's interesting to see how much
the painting surface affects the look of a piece. I have discovered I'm
less frustrated switching surfaces if I use a different type of brush on each.
I find it easier to paint on canvas with stiff hog bristle brushes and on
gessobord with much softer synthetic brushes.
