Recycled Still LIfe Objects

While organizing my studio this month I came across an old painting that inspired me. It is entitled "Bottle with Roses" but it really should have been "Ode to Morandi". I was living upstate NY when I did this so I don't think I had seen much of Morandi's work in person (books,yes). I was fortunate to see a show of his last year. I think I always carry around with me some of his influence. The stillness and the mysterious quality of his bottles are fascinating. Anyway, since I'm on this "cup" journey I wanted to use one or more of the same bottles in a new painting. The other two bottles made it to my desk, but didn't seem to work in the painting. Maybe another day... POR

Another beauty.
I'm looking forward to spending the winter with your book doing the specific color palettes, on teeny boards of course ;)
