The Omelette

I was on a still life roll during the autumn of 2010. Living back in the boondocks of Vermont after the bustle of NYC was difficult. Having only my bike to get around gave me great motivation to just buckle down and paint what I had on hand around me. Gone were the crystal vases and fine antiques. I can't stand plastic. So wood and iron seemed the best, combined with vegetables and of course, eggs. Blue Hubbard squash isn't really an omelette ingredient but I added it to the composition at the last minute for height and depth. Finding a suitable mat color when I framed this was difficult. I chose a dark shiny purple and someone at the Sterling College exhibition told me this mat really resembles the color and look of an eggplant!
