16x12" oil on linen panel.Another still life from a series created in my old studio on Ann Street in Beaufort, NC. Winter could be a tough time on the coast. With high wind and cold temps, sometimes I just wanted to nest in my studio! Though I didn't really have heat,(I had a little plug in box heater for the space) at least the wind wasn't cutting through me! I would spend some days setting up random studio objects on my 1 shelf in the studio, and paint the set up. This collection includes one of my solo show cards for Adam Cave Fine Art, a cheap wine bottle, thrift store cup, a cola bottle found on Radio Island, and cool glass net balls borrowed from a friend and patron of mine. A fun afternoon, especially considering I was getting another wine bottle ready for the studio prop collection! JC
