I finished this painting today. Its 24 x 30 inches, and it took about five weeks or so, which felt like forever, but I learned a few things in the process. One big thing is not to make the background too dark. I find if the background isn't too dark there are more options for playing with the positive and negative shapes. I ended up painting this background four different times before I was happy with it.

I'm very happy ( over the moon really) to have three of my still life paintings included in "Re-presenting Representation VIII" at the Arnot Museum in Elmira NY. The show is up until May 31st. Here is a link to the Arnot's Facebook page that has more info about the show.
