Still Life

Still life work offers an opportunity to study a subject closely and explore the various compositions, techniques, and moods with which this subject can be expressed. The thing itself is always elusive in paint form, as it is in language. However, a beauty emerges as the artist moves to capture some essential quality.

I am most inspired by the still life work of artists like Georgia O’keeffe, Maya Kopitseva, and many more, including the countless talented impressionist and expressionist artists posting today on Instagram.
