Apple and paprika, 6 x 6in, oil painting on linen
I had set up a different still life with a very extreme perspective on an italian expresso maker. I had already sketched in the composition and started to mix the colors when I suddenly realized I didnt like what I was doing. Why should I paint something I dont like that much. And why would anyone else like what I dont like. Hahh, so I quickly decided to throw in these two items and they clicked. It feels like they are in deep conversation.
