still life paintings

Still life is challenging and something I've done my entire artistic career. So many artists have influenced me at one time or another, Cezanne, Gaugin, Bonnard, Margaret Ottey, Degas, Edward Hopper, Van Eyck, the list goes on and on as I continue to study and try to emulate those masters I admire at the time.  Most important is to be with what I'm doing and try to find out where the colors, arrangement and objects come to speak to me in some way.
