My latest oil still life. We're having company soon and I don't know how soon I'll finish it so I wanted to post its progress so far. In the future I'd like to set up a table that is a little further away from my easel so I get a longer view of the still life, but for now this is what I've got. In this composition I was concerned with families of shapes and color distribution for coherence. It took me an entire afternoon to locate and settle upon the background and the objects, and then put them together into a decent arrangement–that's hard! At any rate, I'm going to try to finish it soon, but I've still got cleaning and cooking to do in preparation for guests, so I just don't know…I love doing these still lifes and I never realized how fun it would be!!!!
