Still Lifes

Welcome to a curated sampling of available works selected from past exhibitions of my Still Life paintings. As I travel, I make quick sketches of fishmonger stalls and take photographs of the arrangement of cheese, vegetables, and fruit at farmer’s markets. Then every decade or so, I give in to the urge to make still life paintings. I focus on a specific quince (or pear, or fish) and make marks, dabs, scratches, and stains that bestow immortality – bringing it to immortality with a touch of syncopation, a dash of visual hyperbole. I find both the process – and the results – deeply satisfying.

So here are my wares: quinces from two trees in my backyard, pears and brie from a local farmer’s market, and fish displayed on fishmonger stalls in Forcalquier, Provence and Cádiz, Spain.
