Back in the saddle

As I explore the many potential directions that my recent landscapes have opened up to me; in many ways nothing feels better than to paint a Still life!  In part it has that 'comfortable shoe', type feeling but more than that -  my approach to both subjects is so separate and divergent. This may be a passing phase, but I feel each subject requires a different perspective, especially in strength of palette and the way a close object is explored compared to a more distant panorama. I could ramble on, but here I'll let the painting speak!

  1. Beautiful use of strong color...works well with close up subjects...
