Artist's Desk With Boat
Painting - Oil On Canvas
I do not do many still life paintings, but appreciate the freedom to set up iconic items in the way of my choosing and in a way that fits artistic structural needs. This painting is done in impressionistic manner but has some old master traditions incorporated into it. Objects spilling out of the frame (or being cut off by the frame) is a design element that is relatively new. At one time, old master painting instructors would have smacked my hands with a mahl stick for that. Today, I can turn from my computer and see my desk still a stage for the boat and the flo blue vase. The lamp has been exchanged for a different one, and the teapot is in the kitchen. The light coming through blinds still draws interesting shapes on the top of the desk.
