"THE SWALLOW JUG"
In still life paintings artists often return to subjects they consider again and again. Think Cezanne and his oranges. Georgia and her bones.
I'm drawn to white jugs and pitchers. So it seems is this contemplative cat. Or maybe it's the swallows he finds mesmerizing.
WORKING IN A SERIES
Whether consciously planned or not, I often work in a series of images that become variations on a theme of related subject matter. "Stable Society" is an example of this type of series. These include small vignettes depicting life in and around stables. It's a good life. For those of you who follow my work, you will see regular appearances from this series.
