Still Life With Oval Tray
by Pat Kelly
Oil 16 x 20
Entered in: November 2010
Note: This painting is almost textbook perfect in terms of composition, values, leading the eye, abstract design, color, etc. But the artist took us way beyond simply rendering the subject by showing us the mystery and delight of discovery in simple objects. The shadows are rich and full of beautiful subtle color shifts. I found something new everytime I looked at the painting.
