An amazing still life from the Chrysler. This is huge ... and more complicated than even my dad has set up for me. I figure by posting this I could make my Still Life class nervous that I'll get some ideas. I think this guy can paint. According to the signage in the Chrysler Museum, Berne-Bellecour painted primarily military subjects and battle scenes. This is a rare still life for him, but he utilized his expertise in depicting military braid and armor on the gorgeous silver, glass and ceramics shown here.

I loved a painting by Gray Dodson. She captured the silvery tones of water and showed the sun with an aqua glow around it. I really wish I had a photo to show you. It is a real stunner.
These days were truly an adventure. I remember walking into the room at the reception. My three paintings were the first in the show. Colored stars were hanging from two of them. I figured that was a good sign.
