Day three .... more stuff

Bored yet? Anyway ..... a few more pics for your perusal. I may leave a few days between the next post for a bit of a break.
This is an old cast iron kettle that was given to me by friends in Yokohama and I love the unusual shape, it seems to float above the table because of the unusual hidden bottom.

40 x 30 cms (approx. 16 x 12 inches)
oil on canvas board


24 x 19.5 cms (approx. 9.5 x 7.5 inches)
oil on gessoed hardboard


  1. i love the balance of shapes in the kettle painting: both objects seem to be reflecting each other, so different yet so alike. anyway my humble opinion. And the light is perfect. Both beautiful pieces, perfectly executed as always. r.

  2. Bored?!? Are you kidding me? We should be so lucky to see such exquisite paintings even once in our lives. Really beautiful, Paul. You have great skill.

  3. p.s. you had dropped off my blog list for awhile (happens with time passing between posts) but you are back on again!

    Your work is admirable. I love it! I will be back and will most definitely NOT be bored.

  9. Paul!

    Amazing job on these!

    I literally thoughts these were photographs at first glance. I had to click onto the larger scans to make sure these were indeed paintings.


    Expertly done!!


  10. Truly beautiful work, Paul. I greatly appreciate your dedication to this level of realism.

  11. I'm stunned! Such realism is so hard to create but you do it so well. Fabulous!

  12. Hello, your paintings impresssed me so much. May be because they are just the opposite to my impasto works:)Very pure and intimate colours.

  13. Paul, thanks for stopping by my blog. Your paintings are so beautiful. Your mastery of reflective objects gives me the incentive to do more. I like your dark backgrounds as well. 'The piece with the lemons and the white footed bowl, absolutely delicious!
