Old Lure and Books

Oil on board
16 x 20

For this painting, I used some items with sentimental attachment.  The silver compote was a gift for our wedding, 39 yrs ago.  It was already an antique at that time. I didn't know the givers, they were friends of my in-laws.  I just remember her name was Maria!
The books belonged to my father in law.  One is titled "Trout" by Bergman and the other is also a fishing book, but I don't recall the name. It's on our shelves. 
The old fishing lure is part of my collection and I don't remember where I got it.  I keep them under a glass topped coffee table.
I love the smooth surface of this painting.  It was done on a piece of gessoed Masonite.
