Still life

Still life can sound pretty boring – a good subject perhaps when there really isn’t anything else to paint?  Well like anything else it depends on who is painting, you just need to look at a still life by Shirley Trevena and you will immediately see her passion for the subject. 
So as I wander through the kitchen I sometimes find a visual attraction to a random still life arrangement and I just have to paint it.  Pears are simply wonderful shapes, tulips as they collapse in Tom’s vase, the mangle in the fireplace . . . . . opportunities are endless, and certainly not boring!
