Still Life

Done in 1999, I think. I made this as an experiment: I wanted to see if a painting much larger than life (the original is 2' x 2') would look especially sharp when reproduced.

I was kicking myself while I was working on it, because it ended up taking so long to paint that large. I had to spend several weeks looking at a boring, awkward still life I set up in 10 minutes.

(No, it's not from a photograph. I deliberately made distant bits blurry to give an impression of depth.)
