"Two Creamers and Oriental Rug"

This week’s featured painting is “Two Creamers and Oriental Rug” from 2018.  It is done with oil on panel, and measures 8 x 10  inches.

These paintings usually begin with a moment of strong connection with one of the objects.  It’s not always the biggest or brightest object, or even the center of attention, but it somehow serves as an anchor for the rest of the composition.


From there, it is a careful, deliberate process of adding new elements, judging the result, making adjustments, and then continuing until it somehow seems complete.

In this way, the painting evolves organically – like a living being.



This slow, meditative approach to constructing a painting is often reflected in the spirit of the painting itself.
