I have plans on creating a series of abstract still life pieces. I keep doing some as a “warm up” or to figure out how I want to go about them. I suspect my series will end up being a string of my “practice” pieces!
This is “In Good Taste” which was created by first entirely covering the 12 x 12 canvas with a pretty paper napkin which can still be seen in the vase. A second napkin in deep reds was pasted on toward the top, and bits of it are visible in the flowers. Then it was just a matter of painting out what I didn’t want. I added a pear, with a bit of a burrito wrapper that bore the word TASTE, hence the name.
This canvas, along with many of my other pieces is currently available at Tessera Fine Art Gallery. Call (316) 262-2435 if interested.
