I continue to do these small still-lifes that just focus on a single fruit or perhaps a small cluster of fruit. I am not trying to render the object as a technical exercise but as a way to move beyond what could be fairly bland subject matter towards allusions to the entire process of life and death, that is encapsulated by a ripening piece of fruit.
As I am prepping for shows in the summer and fall I will put those paintings up closer to these dates. So maybe less fully realized paintings but lots of studies and sketchbook pages, which is what this blog of mine was about in the first place.
