Artist Comments

This particular painting is a nautical still life. Most people envision a bowl of fruit, a vase of flowers, or a figurine sitting on a table when they think of a still life. However, a still life can be composed of any inanimate object.

When choosing a subject matter for my paintings, sometimes I like to give myself a challenge. I found these fishing boat fenders that were tied to the pillar of a fishing pier very interesting because of all the different textures (wood pier, rusty chains and rubbery boat fenders) present. I thought they would be an interesting challenging trying to paint all that texture. One really does get a sense of texture from the detail in this artwork.

In case you didn’t know, a boat fender is a type of bumper or cushioned buffer used to prevent a boat or other watercraft from bumping into a dock, pier or another boat causing damage to its hull. They are usually constructed from rubber, foam or plastic, and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes depending on what they are being used for.

This isn’t the only time I’ve taken on “texture” as a particular painting assignment for myself. Check out these paintings: Still Life with Tractor Tire and Barn Door with Horse Tack.

Artist Comments

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

This still life painting is a combination of several such reference  photographs which depicted the nautical elements I wanted to portray in my painting. One of those elements was coral. Coral can be found in so many different shapes, sizes and colors. Although, pinks and reds are the most common colors. They are tiny sea creatures which 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 very interesting to include some coral in this one. I’m happy with the way it turned out and I especially like the nautical lantern to finish out this marine themed still life.
