I’ve been looking a lot of still life paintings recently.  What I’m finding, is that I’m drawn much more to paintings that are about a space. Paintings that help to show an environment.  I’m trying to bring more of that idea into my current series of  still life paintings.

Today’s post features a wonderful bunch of sunflowers, eucalyptus, and some small yellow wildflowers. My entire studio had a wonderful spring time smell when I walked in.  This painting also shows off my main work table.  It’s really a drafting table that tilts up of down, but I find it most useful in a flat position.  Scattered around the sunflowers, are some plein air sketches from this past summer, and an art book that I have been looking at for inspiration.

 This painting has been sold.

Today’s painting is a study done for a series of still lifes.  I always loved this little painting.  It was not one of the studies selected by my client for the project, so a larger painting was never created.  This painting is 11×14″ inches, and is painted on a stretched linen canvas.

I think anytime you move, you find things that youmay  have forgotten about.  In moving my studio, I found several color studies, figure studies, and small paintings that I had forgotten about.  To kick off life in my new space, I’ve decided to have a sale.  I’m offering these paintings at my eBay store for some fantastic starting bids.  The first of the auctions comes to an end on Thursday, November 13th. Other auctions will be running through the end of next week.   Please click here to check it out.
