Still Life is a 24” X 28” original oil painting by Kristen, in the style of modern realism. “I really like the style of the French artist, John Rewald Cezanne, who of course was known for his still life paintings. He used lots of bright colors, dark lines and high contrast.
I am influenced by him and I find similarities in our still life painting styles. I enjoy taking the ordinary and turning it into something interesting. Still life paintings are like this. These ordinary objects; grapes, a wine bottle, a pear, a gourd…these normal simple things can be turned into something of interest and beauty.
I love being able to change something bland into a visual feast. I do not analyze nor prepare how the painting will turn out. I allow the process to dictate that. It is a surprise to me how the piece finishes. It has a life of its own.”
