Needing to be Returned

Needing to Be Returned
9x12 oil on paper
I finished this small still life today. I am quite pleased with how it turned out. This latest series has been a lot of fun to paint. Working from life instead of a photo I think has immensely helped how I see a subject and to determine what is important  as in what goes into the painting and what gets left out.
When I set up a still life, I may spend quite a bit of time arranging items, adding and subtracting until I am pleased with the look. I make my hand into a spy tube or look  through a paper roll to narrow in on the scene and see if it works for me.
I hope you enjoy this painting. Any purchase inquiries please contact me through
