Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Both these little pieces are in oil. Still life painting captures a moment in time and yet somehow, as one gazes upon the painting, one also pauses and reflects, taking a breath, beholding, like a window or glimpse into another stillness that recreates, refreshes, revives.
