One of my first winters in Maine was spent working on the still life. As a landscape painter, I was a little unsure where to start. I found I really enjoyed the color of ornate tablecloths and the view of the table from above… a more aerial perspective. The tablecloth in each painting set a sort of color scheme for that painting. It was tough, but also fun to play around with the objects and the design of each composition also.
Looking back on these paintings, these are my favorites because they are simpler and more graphic than some of the others.
