You might ask me

Why are you painting a picture of glass things?

The title of this painting will be the Coalminer and the ball.

I think back in time of an old friend of mine Syl told me about the coal mining job that he used to do in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia.

The days were very long and hard.

He used to use lanterns to help him see at night. This lantern are a nice addition in the mix of "what to paint objects.

Next is the blue preserve jar. This may have been used to keep part of his lunch in.

The large clear container on the right is for the clean water to keep hydrated.

I'll get back to you soon with a progress picture
