Still Life

In the summer at the Art Students League I paint from the complicated set-up which I help create:  flowers, bottles, vases, fruit, fabric galore, trays, stools, and the occasional bird or butterfly.  Every day the set-up is different.

The challenge is to pick and chose from the complicated set-up, those objects you want to paint and arrange them in a way that appeals to you on the paper and then actually paint them.  The final painting may show little resemblance to the actual set-up.  That’s the fun of it.
