I love painting from life. Fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers are so desirable and readily available at the local farmer’s market or food store. And as subjects, they keep perfectly “still”. Painting from life gives me a different perspective and wider range of color harmonies, values, and textures that are hard to achieve when working strictly from photo references. This is why I prefer to paint from life whenever possible.
My original still life in this portfolio are available and I also accept commission requests for still life paintings.
