Colorful impressionist still life oil painting on canvas.

This ethereal still life with it's soft edges and luminous hues portrays the fleeting essence of form. Through a gathering of beautiful objects, differing shapes and colors are explored. Pushed into a more abstract realm, they start to lose their definition but not their meaning within the whole. A single orange takes on a slightly more radical presence though with it's hard edge and vibrant color.

The visual story in this painting is enhanced through the very expressive brushwork and rich palette of colors. A sense of texture, dimension and movement runs throughout the still life engaging the senses in an experience.

This oil painting was inspired by my curiosity around time and transcendence which is something more on my mind as I get older. The work veers from my general direction as a painter but was a necessary part of my process at this time. I created it on a gallery wrapped canvas where the sides have been painted so the artwork can hang "as is" or framed.

If you have any questions on the painting please convo me. I respond within 24 hours.
