Take a Shot

Shot Glass and Mandarin Oranges
Shot Glass and Mandarin Oranges, oil on canvas panel

At painting, I mean. I’m not a big advocator of doing shots, but I’ve had this cool little shot glass for a while. I wanted to continue with my small painting studies and it seemed to fit perfectly along with my little mandarin oranges. And since I love painting orange on blue, I set it all up on a blue shirt and voila! A still life setup doesn’t have to be fancy or necessarily have to “make sense”. They are just objects and things that catch your eye and make you want to paint them. I like things that are shiny and I have a sneaking suspicion that’s why most artists like to paint still life. So go ahead, find a couple of shiny things and give it a try.
