"Teacup with Green Napkin"

This week’s featured painting is “Teacup with Green Napkin” from 2019.  It is done with oil on  panel, and measures 5 x 5 inches.

In a way, still life painting is a little like fiction writing.

While the actual story line in a novel may not have taken place and the actual characters never existed, that novel can still reveal deep truths about human nature, and living, and so on.


It’s similar with still life: Most people don’t have artificially arranged collections of things like these sitting around their house.

And yet a good still life can reveal hidden beauties we may not otherwise notice.


And the best still life paintings can hint at Timelessness.
