Still Lifes

Still life has always been a great interest and it is from Still Life that I taught myself how to paint. The main emphasis of my education under Nerina Simi focused mainly on drawing and it was at her urging that I continued to draw and I use still life as my educational tool for painting. Still life gives the painter an opportunity to work with many different textures colors and composition. It also allows the painter to tell stories whether they be personal interest, statements of today’s world, Vanitas and sometimes just a still life.
