Still Life

There is something so intimate about being in front of a still life.... it is largely some food item, like fruit or bread.  It conjures up pleasant memories of delicious flavors and sharing everything good with friends. Some of these still life setups I painted outside in the sun, the glaring sun!  When that happens the reflections are so strong off the local colors that new colors appear everywhere on the items before me.  It is delight to see and record for you. Its an adventure mixing all the subtle variations.  This series of still life paintings from life, painted outdoors or indoors  are a delight with luscious appetizing colors!
