Still Life: Vegetables and More - Original Artwork
Signed by artist, Katherine P. Smith. Title: Vegetables and More.
Hand painted still life of vibrant vegetables: eggplant, tomatoes, corn, peppers, cabbage in the foreground. Wine, jug and bucket in the background.
Still life is defined by inanimate objects, no animals or people, yet still managing to convey strong emotion.
I interpret this painting to symbolize abundance. Multiples, pairs of each vegetable. Large vessels, empty bucket can be interpreted as sharing the wealth, being generous. A great piece for the dining room. I would even suggest a double mat to follow the symbolism of the painting of abundance, finished with a gold frame to enhance and make painting even grander.
(I am having fun writing these. Remind me of Art History class I took in college).
Acrylic on flat canvas panel. Unframed. 2003.
