Chinese Ginger Jar with Strawberry
Today’s painting for you
“Chinese Ginger Jar with Strawberry”, Oil on Panel, 8×8 inches, 2012 (sold)
One of the best reasons to show older paintings like this is that it helps me with my future work. I often get reminded of good ideas and approaches I’ve had in the past that for one reason or another have fallen by the wayside, but maybe shouldn’t have.
For instance this – I love, love, love the idea of a stone slab appearing to float on nothingness, becoming the solid base for a still life painting. It’s an idea that ought to have a place in upcoming paintings.
I hope you enjoy it!
