work in progress...

painting wall

The last week or so I have started a series of paintings of single found objects - mostly vessels of one sort or another that I have found in the ruins that dot the landscape around here.  For me, still life painting is a way of slowing things down, and slowing the viewer down.  Contemplating abandoned objects introduces an element of randomness, and is way of avoiding prettiness and sentimentality (I hope!).  Happy Christmas!


  1. Love your idea,and wishing you a happy Christmas and an enjoyable painty New Year

    1. Let's see how it works out! Early days. Happy Christmas to you (both) and keep painting!
