This is one of the few still life paintings I have done. Painting still lives hold little interest for me. The very title still life implies the lack of living energy that inspires me so. But once in a while a still life can generates own energy. This is one of those such cases. The chairs are seemingly inviting you to join them in their quiet attendance and solitude.
Music Man No.1
Music Man No.2
Music is a very important artistic expression. It has always been one of my passions for I am eclectic when it comes to music. I was exposed to many different styles of music while growing up. Later I learned to use music when painting to help enhance my creativity.
I painted this picture in memory of my late aunt Sarah. I have to say she was not only my favorite aunt but also a very memorable character. I never knew her as a young child but knowing her as an adult made me want to capture her at a time in her life when she was free to be anything she could dream. I will say that she helped to lead me along a road of artistic discovery.
