Homegrown Still Life

There's something satisfying about creating a painting of stuff you've grown in your own garden. A truly complete creation from start to finish. This was my first still life since probably high school art class many years ago.

Homegrown Pepper and Garlic - 8"x8" oil and gessobord - $195 


I grow my own garlic and save back a few bulbs to replant each Fall for an unending supply. My yard is rather shady but pepper plants seem to love it.

  1. High school was just a little while ago. Still lifes are enjoyable, sometimes I like to set one up outside, combines it into a plein air. I like how you painted so many colors into your whites in your garlic.
