"The successful painter is continually painting still life" Charles Hawthorn
Earlier this week heard a soon to be art school graduate dismiss her recent education in painting because the instructor had the class only painting still lives. I find myself painting quite a few still lives lately. The majority of what is shown in this blog has been still lives. I like to paint still lives, they are an amusing process for me, visual challenges. I like the relationships of shapes and color, the illusion of the space between objects. I get to explore them in a still life. It seems that what I choose to paint is of interest to me, I'm not sure how well they speak to others.
