My latest painting, my first "baby" of 2015. Yup, something new but about somethings old. My starting point is an antique shop that I trailed my aunt and uncle into while visiting them in Shanghai last summer but I'm freely changing the color scheme.
I have an art buddy, Negina. We meet up regularly to keep each other from slacking off on our paintings. I started this painting while she's out traveling so she hasn't seen it yet. She's going to poke fun at me for painting "women pondering" again. I do seem to paint that often...But, no. What I most wanted to paint here was not my aunt but the THINGS! That beautiful abundance of THINGS! I was drawn to the organized clutter in this photo in the same way that I'm drawn to the wonderful works of Manabu Ikeda.
