Daily Painting Still Life, "Silver and Seashells"

"Silver and Seashells"
Oil on Linen Panel

As long as I was having a moment with the little clam shell, I decided to expand on the subject and try something I have been wanting to do. I have painted silver in acrylic and watercolor before, but have not tried it in oils until now. You tell me...did I get there?
Some time ago someone gave me a candle in this small silver container with the beaded edge. The candle has long ago been used up, but I saved this little piece of silver, knowing I would use it for something someday. I guess today is the day.
