Paper Bags


oil on hardboard panel
6'' x 6"

My wife Karen is a master when it comes to painting paper bags. I've watched her work on them, and marveled at how she "carves" out each facet of those ocher jewels. So, I'm attempting them again, on a much smaller scale. I loved this particular composition, because so much of subject was in shadow. And that blast of light with it's reflection on the oak table, blew me away.

Your work stands out immediately in the Daily painters Blog and I just wanted to say, it is fascinating work.

I'm not often drawn to super-realism, although I GREATLY admire the talent, this one I resonate with. My work would never be this refined, intentionally so and but also because it takes a specific and incredible talent to master such a style. Great work.

This is a lovely painting of such a mundane object...

The glowing colors of the paper is so vivid it looks like bronze! I look at a paper bag and see dullness, but you've made it look extraordinary to me.

How can paper bags become beautiful sculptures, in a painting no less? Just great!
