Still Lifes

Like all still lifes, mine are about objects paused in a moment in time, defined by the tonal distribution of light and shadow.
“Glass Garden”

This piece was commissioned by a lover of flowers who wanted to see all of her garden favorites represented on her wall.

“Flying Takeout”

Some nights it’s just easier to dial (or more accurately punch an app) for Chinese takeout.
I love to do still lifes because they let me pose improbable scenes such as this flying carpet of poppies, persimmons and takeout food from a palette deliberately limited to red, white and a touch of blue.

“The Red Onion”

A simple study in praise of that all-purpose bulb, the red onion.
