Another favorite! And how to you decide whether the tools are vertical or horizontal? I was having this discussion with a friend that is a pastel painter and she did this wonderful pair of scissors. She could not decide which way to frame it. Her scissors reminded me of your paintings and I told her about you.

Thanks for looking Lisa!
I do so many paintings that I think I automatically assume I will eventually paint all of my tools both vertically and horizontally. That said, I often look at the shadow the object is casting and I pick the orientation that is most interesting to me at the moment
