The artist wrote, “Apart from the fun of painting itself, there are several other things I like about still life painting. To begin with, I don’t have to worry about my subject falling asleep or moving, and I don’t have to deal with spectators either. I can paint anything I want to, even things that might be impossible in real life, as long as I do it in a plausible way.

“Because of the almost unlimited painting time I have, I’m free to explore my colors and ways to use them. It’s the same with my tools as well. Still life has become an opportunity to discover new effects, and then develop new techniques for achieving them. Still life for me is anything but still. It is really a vast arena of creativity, and I can also have my lunch while I paint!”
