“Paintings have a life of their own that derives from the painter’s soul” – Vincent Van Gogh
Still life is defined as a collection of inanimate objects arranged together in a specific way.
The magic of still life paintings is that they can show us a new way of looking at the
ordinary objects around us. The way that the objects are depicted can evoke a wide variety
of emotions, depending on their arrangement with specific lighting, color choice, and
handling of the paint.
