This still life was painted from items around the house.  I particularly liked the placement of my phone within the context of the painting to show time.  Although traditional in it's composition, the incorporation of modern devices tells it is of the 21st Century.

Getting to Know Carl

Carl grew up in rural Kansas with little exposure to fine art, but a wonderful school art teacher pushed him to pursue a creative path. His still life work is influenced by Wayne Thiebaud’s stylized realism, candy colors, and visible brushstrokes. Inspired by objects and scenes from his daily life, Carl includes items of both traditional and contemporary origin in his still life compositions. Carl also demonstrates his comprehensive understanding of the human form in his figurative and portrait work. He offers commissioned portraits from life in the New York metropolitan area, usually formatted as a two-hour experience with the sitter.
