Still-Life Paintings

Things around me

Still Life painting is where I get the most enjoyment. I get inspired from simple objects, shadow play and different or off-kilter view points. When I get one of those “what to paint?” periods, I look to the little things around me. Most of my still life paintings are objects right here at home or in our yard. Painting in the garden is a great way to kill a few hours and makes for a nice afternoon. Most of my pictures are acrylic on canvas, usually one painting session with a couple done from photos (bigger ones).
