Impressionistic Still Life

I found a really good release in a certain style of painting that I stumbled on out of frustration.  The best way I can describe it is “impressionistic”, but it involves a lot of paint, and fast, globbing action.  The result is something that slightly resembles what I’m painting, but the feeling I get from it is very rewarding.  If you’re looking for photo-realism, I’m not that guy!  You really should look at this guy (http://www.stevemillsart.com/) for that… he’s beyond amazing!  I’m more in it for the feeling, but I have to admit a great deal of jealousy when I look at Steve’s stuff.

So what you see here is a very impressionistic version of a vase with flowers, and a salt shaker on a table.  Enjoy.
