I’ve been looking a lot of still life paintings recently. What I’m finding, is that I’m drawn much more to paintings that are about a space. Paintings that help to show an environment. I’m trying to bring more of that idea into my current series of still life paintings.
Today’s post features a wonderful bunch of sunflowers, eucalyptus, and some small yellow wildflowers. My entire studio had a wonderful spring time smell when I walked in. This painting also shows off my main work table. It’s really a drafting table that tilts up of down, but I find it most useful in a flat position. Scattered around the sunflowers, are some plein air sketches from this past summer, and an art book that I have been looking at for inspiration.
