Artist Comments

Artists will often use reference photos to compose their paintings. Sometimes they will create their composition from only one photo, and other times several photos are used. There’s nothing wrong with painting from photographs; artists do it all the time.

Still Life with Coral and Lantern combines several such reference photographs that depicted the nautical elements I wanted to portray in my artwork. One of those elements was coral. Coral can be in so many different shapes, sizes, and colors. Although, pinks and reds are the most common colors. They are tiny sea creatures that live in the ocean in large colonies that look like plants. They will live all of their adult lives in one place and prefer the places where the water is warmer. When they die, their skeletons form a hard stony substance, also called coral. Large deposits of coral often accumulate to form reefs or islands.

I had never used coral in a painting before, so as I considered painting a still life with a nautical theme, I felt it would be interesting to include some coral in this one. I’m happy with how it turned out, and I especially like the nautical lantern to finish out this marine-themed still life.

Artist Comments

Fishing is a popular recreation and pastime for those lucky enough to find the time to fish for the “big one.” I don’t particularly like to fish myself, I find it rather boring, however, I do have several friends who enjoy this sport. But this doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy painting someone fishing. I do!

I found this particular fisherman painting an interesting subject to paint with that red boat tied up to a piling. This is one of my earlier paintings and unfortunately, I don’t have a better photograph of it. It is so much more wonderful when viewed in person.
