Mums on the Table

February 28th, 2007

“Mums on the Table – 6.5″ x 10″ (approx.) – watercolor

Purchase from the artist

Being in Southern California, even with occasional cold days, my chrysanthemums don’t know when to stop blooming. They start around late October but there are always some stragglers that manage to put out a few more blooms unless I cut them back – hard – in December.

Our oak dining room table is becoming one of my favorite places for a still life setup. You’ve seen it in the eggshells and in the black and white study of the pear/grape and bottle … and now the dining room window provides the rimlight for these blooms, casually tossed in a glazed ceramic vase we picked up a few years ago at a garage sale.

  1. Love the way you’ve captured the light coming through the window (even though you can’t see the window, it seems to suggest the room’s interior)

  2. Great use of whites to capture the quality of the light. I really like this one!

  4. Beautiful…I agree with what Felicity said…I can’t see the room, but I have a sense of it being a very pleasant space.

  5. You may have to move your studio to the dining room – all the still lifes you’ve set up there are FANTASTIC!! Gorgeous light on the mums and you’ve captured it so well.
