Do Still Life Paintings Always Stay Still?

I am thrilled to present this recent series of still life paintings.  It started with a beautiful grey dinner plate I bought at Good Will.  I thought about paintings of just the plate, quiet and serene.  Then, as I worked on them and developed the idea things started to move around, patterns with silverware appeared and I was off to the races.  

These paintings are about eating and dinner and the kind of drama that happens at dinner.  The objects are metaphors for the players.

These paintings will be sold at Portrait Society Gallery, 207 E. Buffalo St., Milwaukee Wisconsin, 53202, 414-870-9930 starting June 12, 2013.  Stop by for a glass of wine!  Portrait Society Gallery donates proceeds for this to Artists Working In Education.  They are a great group who help art teachers.

 Art ideas develop through working on them.  Sometimes ideas come when away from the canvas but mostly not, for me.
