oil on canvas 10"x14" On this piece I am working on keeping things loose in the handling of the grapes. There are lots of edges with very little blending. I like the energy that results from not working the paint too much.
My paintings are inspired by the way natural light reveals the shape, colour and texture of each subject. Realist painting is as much about the role imagination plays in perception as it is about the careful scrutiny and depiction of "reality." We all conceive and construct what we think is real. It's the individual interpretation that makes realist painting so fascinating.
