Golden Plums


14×14″, oil on panel, 2012

Not every painting has a storyline. Sometimes it’s interesting to take everyday objects and give them center stage in a small painting. My goal in these paintings is to create a sense of drama with the lighting and color, and to glorify the little details in the subject matter that usually go unnoticed in real life. These object-oriented paintings—as opposed to my narrative paintings—are a celebration and meditation on the beauty of the commonplace.
