"My paintings celebrate
the simple joys of everyday life."
Tuesday, May 5, 2020
I've always been interested in using patterned fabric in my still life arrangements. It's a challenge to combine and paint two-dimensional patterns with three-dimensional objects. I set up the peaches on a dish towel with a great 60's mod design. It was fun to paint the pattern reflected in the silver bowl. I've had the fabric printed with the samurai for years and finally used it in a still life. I like the way he's eyeing the mangoes.
