- In this Southwestern Still Life Oil Painting,
"Earthware II," an original oil on panel, I was interested
in creating an artwork that reflected objects of the American
Southwest. The basket is old Jicarilla, the Indian pottery was
loaned to me from a private collection. I drew my inspiration
for the imaginary setting from having visited Chaco Canyon in
New Mexico. The ancient Indians must have had the luxury of enough
time to have developed their craft to such a state of fine art.
