Cherubs with Yellow Apple and Strawberry


Cherubs with Yellow Apple and Strawberries, formerly Cherubs with Wandering Jew, 16″ x 20″ oil on canvas board, framed by the artist

Cherubs with Yellow Apple and Strawberries is a complex composition. The challenge is to direct the eye. It is also a message on the passage of time and thought and the meaning of being. I’d never given much thought to the Wandering Jew plant, more sensitively referred to now as “Wandering Dude” or “Spiderwort” (everyone hates spiders for some reason).

See comments below for more information about this plant. Whatever its called, the color variety and diverse shapes are amazing. Here are a variety of substances, each responding to the light in its own way.  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.
