Still Life in Lilac Shades

Still Life in Lilac

I am drawn to glass and metals in my still life work. Reflection and refraction of light and the understanding of how light works is of fundamental importance if you wish to create a realistic view of such objects. Light is strange as it is, in essence, energy that behaves like matter. But without going quantum electrodynamics on the casual reader here I will simply point out that without light we have no visual art.  I have a thing for purples and lilacs and here I wanted to convey this color offset by sunshine on the oranges, reds and russets of the fruit.
