This painting started as a demonstration for a class I was teaching about light. This was a painting in warm light. I was setting up the classroom still lifes and suddenly realized I had not set up one for myself to demonstrate on. I rushed to the back of the room and threw open the still lif cabinet at the school. Usually, I prepare my set up very carefully so as to get the best opportunity to teach the concepts I want to convey. But there was no time. I selected the first thing that grabbed my attention, the bean pot. I quickly assembled the other things from other cabinets saying to myself “it will be fin, it is only a demo”. Once it was arranged, I decided I decided I really like it. I decided that no matter how it went as a demo I would take it home and put on the finish. I am so glad I did. I do not know why I fell in love with the set-up, maybe it’s the old book, or the rich color in the background or the pattern that makes the sort of old world feel a little less moody. I do know one thing, the roses were a killer color when I laid them on the book, lightening and softening everything. Sometimes it just happens like that, just being in the moment, with no time to over think, gives you a really good result.
