Blue Velvet Still Life, 18″ x 24″ oil on canvas, gallery-wrap (unframed)

This “Blue Velvet” still life came out of a request to demonstrate a still life for my students. When I do still lives I like to incorporate personal elements.  I like to combine unlikely elements as well, to create something original. I see no reason to paint another bowl of fruit, unless I can bring something new to the idea.

The air plant combined with an old photo of my mother, behind an amber bottle, has meaning for me. The photographic image is distorted slightly, obscuring the enigma that she is for me. The symbolism of an air plant, living in a piece of driftwood, the blue velvet, the red Christmas bulb, an amber bottle, are all symbolic elements which speak to me about my mother. She was a mysterious combination of these and many other elements which deeply endeared her to me.

In addition to his amazing oil portraits Robert will create a very personal still life, perhaps celebrating a bride’s wedding with a “portrait” a few of her favorite things. He can capture a special moment in your life, a sport, a musical instrument. Objects, real or imagined, have meaning. They can represent the essence of someone very special, an achievement, our personal values. Any number of meaningful objects can be combined creatively into an original work of art. Can you think of four or five objects that express an important event or time of life of the person you love? Robert will arrange them into a still life and create a treasured heirloom.
