The Kitchen Sink

After a visit to the wonderful "Impressionists' Still Life" show at the Phillips Collection in D.C., I looked at the beans I was preparing for a soup and said, "Now THAT's a still life!". I call my painting of them "The Stars" because the colorful, shiny wet beans had such pizzazz. It looked like they were announcing their leading role in the next meal with a "Ta DAH!!" The title also references the tiny points of light that show through the colander.

I love this still life. The colors are beautiful; makes me want to run my fingers thru those shimmering beans.

You must be 'Aunt Betty'? I've heard so much about you from K (found your link on her Camino blog).
