still life studies

right now i am working on some portraits. i'll plan on posting the results when they are finished. i was hoping to document the process but time got the better of me. maybe next time. i wanted to show some more examples of still life and these paintings are representative of this genre. they are good subjects for someone who doesn't have a lot of time in one sitting as they don't get up and walk away, the sun and weather don't change and, if one uses artificial flowers, don't wilt. i like putting flowers and everyday objects in my paintings . if they look like a table top that someone just walked away from, i am usually happy with the result......informal would be another way to say it. really formal set ups don't do too much for me (and i don't do them very well if i'm being honest.)
