"Tomato Cup" --- SOLD
I'm really liking the dots reflecting off the sides of these cups. It makes me think about focus.
If the focus of this painting is the tomato, then why am I so drawn to the reflecting dots? And did I spend as much time on the reflecting dots as I did on the tomato? Probably more.
I used to do portraits, and they tended to take many days. Once I was working on a rather complicated portrait of two young boys. They were sitting on a bike, and it wasn't quite full figure, but close to it. I spent the first day working on the clothes of one boy. A friend came over and I said "I'm so happy with how the pants turned out." She laughed and said, "but that's not even the important part."
