Weekly Oil Paintings
by Sister Maresa Lilley, SND


16×20″ oil on stretched canvas

Sometimes a haphazard tossing together of objects can make an interesting still life subject…I was with my brother one day when we put together some of his items just for the sake of the painting process. The painting has been in storage for years. This past week I pulled it out and reworked the background color and developed the items further. However, I am thinking, that haphazard does not always work! To finish, or not to finish?
