Books, Box, and Maddy. Still life in Modern Style, for sale by artist

Oil on 16x20 Canvas. A classic theme treated in a contemporary manner.

 This is one of my favorite still life paintings. It includes a cameo of my daughter Maddy.  It is fun for me to intorduce a little portrait in a painting since it makes the still life more personal, especially if other elements of the painting are connected somehow in the life of the person it becomes more than a still life and more than a portrait.

In this the paint is applied heavy with bright colors and deep shadows. Here I am treating a still life almost like a landscape. It is a beautiful painting.

Price is $400.00 Contact me if you want to see this in my home studio, or for a quote on shipping.
