Still Life Art

An original oil painting enhances every home. The still life shines a light on the natural things one might easily overlook, chestnuts, apples and such. Life seemingly captured in a moment. The subjects are timeless, but the interpretation is contemporary, my take on an age-old theme.

I painted this in January, under the soft light of a north facing window. The weather was terrible, the days dark, and I struggled to work but resisted lighting the scene artificially. I call it ‘Darker Than December’.
