Every picture tells a story

Another in this little series of still lifes. Sometimes one painting will push you to explore an idea further, here the copper pot paintings got me using venetian red. I also wanted to stay in the same mind set for a few more paintings before painting outdoors or portraits etc. I came across this little brass horse incense burner and it really caught my eye. The painting developed as I went along and the horse became surrounded by spring summer and fall. The lilac buds ready to open from my yard, beech leaves from springwater. SOLD

New still life

 This is actually the first painting inspired by the great little copper pot. This photo is a detail of a slightly larger work. 16 x 9.5 inches.

New Painting. Oil on canvas 9 x 9 inches

 My latest still life was inspired by a copper pot that a friend gave me. I have been thinking of a title and think it may be Light Music since for me the light seems to be dancing around in an energetic way from object to object.
