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.
