Artist Comments: A still life (plural still lifes) is a painting in which the setting is composed mostly from inanimate objects. Still lifes can be made up of objects that are either natural, man-made, or a combination of both. Natural objects would be things found in nature, such as food, flowers, dead animals, plants, rocks, shells, etc. Man-made objects would be various items like drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, ceramics, and so forth.
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. I found these fishing boat fenders tied to the pillar of a pier a very interesting subject to paint because of the “close-up view” and the contrast in texture (wood pier, rusty chains and rubbery boat fenders.)
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.
