I have reached another milestone today: I have 1000 people following my blog up to now. I feel so grateful that I have so many people liking my paintings. Your support encourages me to explore more in the art world.

Texas has come back to the over 100 F temperature. So I stay indoor and did this high key still life. My colors are getting subtler. I tried to establish a airy perspective like we do in landscapes. When I painted the pot, I softened deliberately its edges and decreased the value contrast of the shadow. I felt I can enhance the depth of the painting with the value contrast variation. There is so much fun and so many possibilities.

Beautiful painting! I think that your recent experimentation and wondering if you'd gone too far in a few of your paintings gave you the freedom to push this one and make it very exciting.

Every aspect is luminous, yet solid at the same time - perfection!

This is my favorite out of all your work recently. The glow on the right is what captivates me in this one. That and the edge work. Wow. Thank you for sharing your work. It is a gift to receive these images!

I don't comment very often on your blog, but I am utterly inspired by your approach. Not saying it is the exact direction I want to go with my own work, but your blog is surely helping me to find my own way.
So a big thank you for sharing your work and thoughts.
