Brass Vessel 11″ x 14″ oil on panel, framed by the artist
Brass Vessel is just a nice still life, created as a paint along lesson for my newest student, Ram. Since he is new to painting, I chose more simple objects. But still the challenge of painting such a variety of reflective surfaces kept us both pretty busy. I want the viewer to feel the surfaces with their eyes. Here be a variety of substances, each responding to the light in its own way.
The brass vessel is from Ram's childhood, used to store cookies and treats. I like the compactness of this composition. It's as if we were painting just one thing, rather than multiple things. How they connect and blend into one another fascinates me. A Still life is interesting because of what goes in and what goes out. The combination of items included can make us think. Sometimes it makes us feel. The rest is a delicious romp of color and the thrill of pushing paint.
