It’s peculiar how much I enjoy painting still life in general and flowers in particular after years of figurative work. There are parts that are of course foreign, but there are far more similarities to how I approach image-making than differences. I’m still looking a composition, color, tone, light and shadow and form. Even as I was sculpting a couple of nights ago I was struck by how similar the resolving of form was to the gradation of paint. It really is all the same stuff. And of course, completely different.
