A simple still life, yet one that demonstrates the power of reflection. Many times I get frustrated when an instructor jubililently announces that we're going to spend the class paintings a still life. After my initial, oh joy, I try to find the most interesting objects (or at least the least weird) to paint. In this class I was facsinated with the reflections of the fruit in the blue pitcher. While I love the energy of the fruit itself, my favorite part is seeing their reflection, looking back at themselves, and feeling a little blue.
