Taking another page from Andy Warhol’s book.  Here are some everyday things in my kitchen from the perspective of my everyday perch where I drink tea, chat with my husband as he cooks ,yes you read that right, he is the cook in the house and where most of my problem solving is done.  I am moving on August 10th and  was feeling some of the spaces in my home need a little homage paying.  Enjoy and keep making art!

Well, what do you think of my second Andy Warhol inspired still life?  Again, as you can see, it still contains my Noritake Watergreen china as well as my cup of tea( without which the experience of making art would not be complete) and my withering birthday flowers sent from one of my many beloved sisters who lives in Qatar.  The sketch was completed in late 2010 and painted on that same bleak mid-Winter night in 2011 during which I painted ‘Watergreen’ ( see my previous post!).  Yes, I completed the two in about three hours listening to great music whilst my little ones slept.  This is also completed on sketch paper with watercolours, acrylics and watercolour pencils ( I don’t leave home without them!).  I really hope you enjoy my foray in Andy Warhol and still life, try one of your own and keep making art!

My still life inspired by Andy Warhol

A few days ago, a fellow blogger asked if I did still life.  I, at that time, had told the blogger in question that I had a still life coming but that it wasn’t what he would usually expect as a still.  The post I refer to is my Sand Dollar post from just a few days ago.  So, in further answer to the question of sill life I am offering this piece, completed on a bleak mid-Winter evening in 2011.  At that time, I had been exploring the work of Andy Warhol and thus, came up with this.  I used watercolours, acrylics and watercolour pencils on sketch paper and I really enjoyed creating it and still really like it!  The china by the way is my Noritake Watergreen Pattern (Made in Ireland!) and it became the topic of this still as it was piled on the dining table (just as it is here) awaiting its return to its usual home in the dining cabinet!  Enjoy, have a closer look at the works of Andy Warhol and keep making art!
