Southwestern Stillife Painting

24" x 30"
Oil on Panel
No. 8
In this Southwestern Still Life Oil Painting, an original oil on panel, I was interested in creating an artwork that reflected the designs and textures of the Southwestern Native American objects from antiquity The basket is old Jicarilla, the Indian pottery is Acoma, and the rug is navaho, which were loaned to me from a private collection. I drew my inspiration for the imaginary setting from living in and around ancient adobe dwellings . The ancient Indians must have had the luxury of enough time to have developed their craft to such a state of fine art. This was the first painting that I painted the rug with a viewable warp and weive, a feit not for a begining artist or for some one that cannot draw freehanded with geometeric accuracy.
