Accidental Still Life

January 28, 2014

I brought this box home from my studio and had nowhere to put it so I placed in my light box.  I needed a subject to paint for today and was thinking of the ginger jar and just placed it in front of the box and there is was, a composition.  I liked the way the black balanced out the ginger jar and created just enough interest.

This experience told me to always be on the lookout for a composition, it could be right in front of you. 


  1. Just enough background interest to balance everything out. And you are staying so loose.

    1. Thanks, I really like your landscape work.
