Cow Tea Kettle Still Life
This past month I've experimented with two types of paintings. One with canvas over wood (CoW) and one without. This painting is a complete opposite of my CoW paintings. The smooth surface adds an almost hyper realism to this very unique and strong still life. The painting is that of cow kettle on a stove. This has to be one of my favorites. The cool grayish and blue tones among high reflective surfaces are complimented by the strong reds in the cow's nose. This painting contains many levels of grays and blues but the painting stands on its unusual and original composition. I don't know if I should laugh or stare at this thing.
