Still life's are always interesting to me. I have never believed that I am good a realism. Painting them force me to try. What I've learned with still life's is that they will never be an exact replica of the photograph or the form I am working from. That's okay. The pictures, the objects are just a starting point for how I choose to represent them. They will never be perfect but they will always be an interpretation. They are always challenging and always force me to really look at things and how they come together. I am training my eye as much as I am training my hand.
