Sitting down, slowing down, and observing the still life, I wasn't sure what to expect. I can honestly say I haven't felt as good about a painting as I do about this still life in a long time. I suppose sometimes it is important to go back to your roots and observe instead of having to try to think of a 'creative and original' idea. I also feel my style is beginning to become more developed and hope to explore it further.

Blue Teapot and Hero's Abyss are being shown at Connell Lofts Gallery in downtown Scranton, Pennsylvania for limited time. Come check out the reception from 6-9 on Friday, April 5th!
Inspired by the still life and the looseness it gave me, I started another smaller 18"x24" to practice working on smaller surfaces. It is also something to work on as I prep my newest large surface, 7'x4'. Bye bye squares!.... At least for a little while.
Also, since I've been a bad blogger and haven't posted in a while, here is an updated studio shot although I'll admit I cleaned it up before taking the photo!
