Tag Archives: Still life


I thought it was going to rain for a while, so I decided to begin a series of small still lives for my up-coming show (In May, my paintings will hang at a local cheese shop, Epicurean Connection. Very exciting. Thank you Sheana.) I started setting things up and then the sun came out.

But I carried on and have 4 paintings fairly well along here. I’ve learned a lot and muttered to myself the whole time, anything from solving the world’s political crises to wondering if I’m crazy to call myself a painter. Looking at a few of my favorite still life painters, Carol Marine, Duane Keiser, Quiang Huang, I have a lot to learn.

These are all 6 x 8″ oil on board.
