Silver and Red Still Life
Silver and Red Still Life, by Bruce Hedges
Oil on Canvas 16 x 20 inches
I couldn't resist the beautiful red fruits, vegetables, and fabric -- and then the silver, with its complex reflections. This painting was done several years ago, at a time when I was doing a lot of painting every day. I had never heard of a blog.
One reason I like still lifes is that the artist can arrange shapes and colors to suit his design idea, rather than just painting whatever happens to be in front of him. (Yes, those are maraschino cherries.) I've always liked this painting.
