I made a decision about five years ago to do two things; paint more "classic" still lifes, and work on a smaller scale. The paintings featured in today's post are the first fruits of that turning point in my art.
There were a few factors which made me decide to go in this direction, not the least of which was the fact that my landscapes began to look the same to me after awhile. Seemed as though I was in a bit of a rut.
These are little 5x7 inch paintings which is a nice scale to work at, when you want to do something different, and complete a painting in a day or a weekend.
