Two Recent Still Lifes

Here are two still lifes that I recently completed. (oil on linen of course) The top is 18x24, I painted it over last summer and had to take it down when I moved studios. It is based around the small robin in the front, that is my mother's and has always sat out at her house as long as I can remember. Compositionally I'm not so sure how strong it is and there are a couple of areas that didn't I didn't finish as highly as I would like to, but it is a a definite step forward from my last large still life. Directly under it is an 8x10 still life of a tea pot that my Dad brought home from China years ago. I'm trying to do a number of small still lifes over the next year or so that are specifically for a growth in my technical skills, I'm trying to finish each one to a higher level. Tea pot still life is available: 450.00
