Still Life with Brushes

Still Life with Brushes - Oil on panel - 12"x9" - sold

I just adore this piece! - Tell you why.

The complexity of the subject itself was an exciting challenge for me.
Keeping my work constantly challenging and exciting is really important for me at this (and every) stage of my development as a painter.

From the subject matter, rhythm, and way I handled paint, to my overall treatment and approach in making this art work really excited me from start to finish.

Concentrating on the subtle changes of form and reflection I worked on creating interest with shifts in focus, shadow and light.

Hope you like it.
