Not sure what my current fascination with bowls is all about. Some artists have a fall back image that they go to when they aren’t sure what to paint. Pears are common. I did a lot of apples at one time. These bowls are different. I feel like they mean something to me…kind of like barns. Stacking them is new for me…and while I may have originally been influenced by Carol Marine’s stacked bowls, mine are uncommonly dark in value. I actually painted this entire piece (28″ x 22″) in black and white and then glazed it with transparent pigments…all acrylic.
