THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
In this Still Life painting, murky pastel colors are used to convey the passing of day into night as it casts shadows on the items in the room. This painting features a large, luscious gourd that has had plenty of time to grow and adapt to the changing of nature. Yet that gourd has been sliced in half with one-half of it lying lifeless on the table and the other half still standing proudly upright. Next to the bottle, which represents confinement, one may feel an anxiousness about death or a life cut short, whether or not it is immediately impending.
