"Walnuts, Wine, and Pumpkin" is the final of a series of three matching paintings exploring my artistic roots in classical Dutch still life painting (the other two can be seen here and here). My concern with the rhythm of the objects was a little simplified with this piece, and I focused more on the drama of the light. Particularly, I was interested in how the light seemed to "turn" as it fell on the form of the pumpkin, and the elegant crimson hue the light acquired as it passed through the wine. This painting is presented in a traditional gold leaf frame, the outer dimensions of which are approximately 11 x 14 inches (27 x 35 cm)
