Still Life Painting 1

"Life Cycle"

Oil On Canvas

5.5' X 3.5'

 

In this painting, I also wanted to put more emphasis on the floor space as opposed to the table.  It deals with a bird figurine that falls from the table, crashes to the floor, breaks, and is then put back together and lands back on the table.

 

"Deep Shadows"

Oil On Canvas with Objects

5' X 3.5'

 

This painting is one of my all-time favorites.  It illustrates the "dark side" of things so there is a shadowy feeling behind the images.  Both the current clock and rug have been painted with oil paint.



 

"Untitled"

Oil On Canvas

5' X 3'

 

  

Similar to the tablecloth, my goal was to achieve a more straightforward composition by utilizing free-form brushstrokes.

"Self Portrait with Apple"

Oil On Canvas with Objects

5' X 3'

 

I tried to be a little silly with this painting. Using pictures that are personal to "me," I intended to turn a still life into an anthropomorphic representation of me. An old shoe is painted on the table, and the paint and brushes represent the artist within me. An old pair of shoes and socks of mine are fastened to the two table legs.



"Fish Tales"

Oil On Canvas

4' X 3.5'

 

I wanted to explore the three geometric shapes that make up this still life and their relationship to each other.  Also, the play on the words "Tail" and "Tale".



 

Untitled"

Oil On Canvas

6' X 3'

 

This painting attempted to use more color in the tabletop and cloth, giving a greater feeling for the developed geometric shapes.



 

 

"Don't Cry Over Spilt Milk"

Oil On Canvas

5' X 3'

 

This is one of my earlier still-life paintings.  I wanted to explore the table image and the space around it.  This painting takes a theme from the traditional still life of fruit on a table or bowl and merges it with a spilled glass of milk.

 



 

"Nights Alone"

Oil On Canvas with Objects

4.5' X 3'

 

I wanted to combine painted imagery with actual objects.  There are both painted and real bottles of beer as well as painted images of pizza and real slices of pizza that I sealed with medium.  



 

"Untitled"

Oil On Canvas with Object

4.5' X 2.5'

 

This painting is a look at the concept of a vase with flowers on a flora tablecloth and how they blend.
