Jar of Olives.....Day 17

Ampersand Gessobord

I am sweating bullets...I wipe this baby out about 4 times and finally brought it to a conclusion!  I was actually going for almost full abstraction.  Pushing the limits was my intention and still maintaining some semblance of reality.  I was looking at the work of Kathryn Kehoe yesterday and that is something that I admire about her work; especially her still life paintings.  If you haven't had an opportunity to look at her work I encourage you to do so.
As I have said many times about my work...I walk with one foot in abstraction and the other in realism.  It is pretty much the way that I approach life.  I like to go to the smallest denominator and then see how close to representation I can come.
 This painting can be found here.
