Experimenting with Still Life Painting

We love painting. We have painting almost every week, usually at the easel. But we paint in other places, too.

We've experimented with still life painting in the past. This time we had a pumpkin, some gourds, and Indian corn for a fall arrangement.

Offering some items to view can inspire painting in many different ways.

Some of us used the nature items as color inspiration.

Some of us painted representations of what we saw.

Some of us enjoyed the arrangement while we painted our own ideas.

Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen. ~Leonardo da Vinci
