Image - Teaspoon of Salt

Title: “Teaspoon of Salt”
Dimensions: 6″x6″
Medium: Oil

There are a few things in life which are really essential; water which I have an affinity for, and salt to name two of them.

I am reading an incredible book titled “Salt: A World History” by Mark Kurlansky and it inspired me to do this painting. It’s a teaspoon filled with sea salt which has tipped onto it’s side and spilled some of that precious rock onto the table. Salt – sodium chloride (NaCL) is found in many parts of the world in either rock deposits or in the sea. It varies in color from pink, red, brown, black, white and gray, and has a wide range of flavors. Sea salt has a white/light gray hue and usually comes in larger crystals then ordinary table salt.
