Flatware


6 x 12 oil on hardboard
The last few weeks had me occupied with a complete master bath remodel. We "hired" it done, but there were still enough peripheral chores to keep me out of the studio, and in construction mode. I did manage to squeeze in three small paintings during what little free time I could find. Anne Irwin asked if I could provide a few paintings for her upcoming Small Works show in December. I was pretty excited about the photography I had done of the silverware Karen's parents had brought over, so decided to try a triptych. Now I'm back at work painting for Stricoff Fine Art. I'm hoping they will like what I'm doing enough to send them out to the west coast for the Los Angeles Art Show in January.

I love this minimal approach Neil.
Great paintings, so poetic- enjoyed your "Flatware No.2" also, with it's amazing oxydation on siver.
Inspiring.

Stunning. Elegant. Best in Show I am sure.

Really love these. The simplicity speaks volumes Neil.
Not to mention the way you've painted them.

Good grief! Every time I visit your blog I'm blown completely out of my shorts. It's cold tonight... sigh

Each of your paintings are so very beautiful, Neil. I am thankful for Ria Hills sending me this way. I especially the love antique blocks and of course, the autumn leaves! But then I love the grapes and the crackers and milk and the silverware, especially the one showing some tarnish...All beautiful feasts for the eyes.
