NEW - "STILL LIFE: STUFF IN THE FRIDGE" - OIL PASTEL DRAWING

New – “Still Life: Stuff in the Frig,” oil pastel drawing on 9” x 12” mixed media paper – Looking over my "œuvre d'art" I realized I had only done one still life since my return to painting and drawing last May (the other is below). Cezanne, for example, painted dozens of them. So I thought I should do the responsible thing with this convention, maybe unconventionally, so here’s another, in an expressionist way (which means I don’t have to worry about the rules of perspective, light and color).. .

The other still life ... "Still Life with Buddha and a Statue" - 24" x 30" acrylic painting on canvas ... (c) 2014 Wes Rehberg
