Still Life subjects have become my favourites over the past year or two. I particularly enjoy the challenge of rendering glass and metal objects. The transparency and translucency of glass and the relflective characteristics of metals make for interesting puzzle solving.
As an avid gardener, I use many of the plants growing in my own garden as the basis for botanical paintings. In spite of living in Zone 3, there are many great subjects I can find out in my environment.
I enjoy getting up close to objects to explore the components that make them up. When examining them in this way, they take on a semi-abstract quality to me, so that although the object is real, the detail gives it another quality altogether.
