"Creamer, Silver Spoon, and Linen"


This week’s featured painting is “Creamer, Silver Spoon, and Linen” from 2021.  It is done with oil on linen on panel, and measures 8 x 8 inches.

Still life is a quiet art form – it’s right there in the name itself.

A good still life painting draws the viewer into a calm, centered place, allowing silence to arise while the outside world falls away for a little while.

If it makes me feel like time has stopped while I’m looking at it, I know it’s a good still life.

If one of my own paintings gives the viewer that experience, then it has succeeded.
