Pots with Orange - ON HOLD

"Pots with Orange", 12 x 9 In, Oil on Panel
This is sort of a minimalist still life. As I work on these still lifes I'm not trying to make them pretty or beautiful or even completely accurate--I'm trying to do something else and hopefully I'll figure it out as I get into it. This one, like some of the others, is under the natural light of the skylight, and that is my favorite light to work with, though not always possible with our Northwest weather.


  1. I *love* how you painted the table they're sitting on, and the shadows. Luscious.

  2. Gorgeous! I love the simplicity of this--the muted tones, the spareness of the objects. Wonderful brushstrokes!

  3. Virginia and Kathryn--thank you for commenting on this painting!
