Hi all, This original oil painting of “Roses on the Kitchen Table” was inspired by a still life class, and Dan felt that the flowers looked as if they were picked by his grandmother from her garden, and placed in a glass bottle on her kitchen table-so this scene brought back memories of his childhood. When you look at this painting, don’t you feel as if you have been transported back in time to an old fashioned kitchen?
This painting was strictly composed by using the palette knife-giving the roses strength of color and depth and richness of chroma. Dan’s goal was to create a very old world feeling with this rendering of the flowers. You can really see the depth of the palette knife strokes, and the dimension added to the canvas.
