Dean Fisher

Dean Fisher Garden oil on canvas 26"x22"


Dean Fisher has painted this broccoli plant with an amazing precision and delicacy. I love the stem's graceful swing to the left, and the muted values of the plant as contrasted with the dark earth. The leaves extend just beyond the edges of the painting, which gives a feeling of growth, of reaching, of aliveness. The determination in this humble plant rising out of the gloom is, in short, inspiring!

Please vote in the sidebar for your favorite still life from last month. Thanks!

In honor of Lisa Daria Kennedy's beautiful flower paintings, we'll spend the month of August considering paintings, drawings and photographs of flowers (a broccoli plant is a flowering plant!). If you have an image of a painting, drawing or photograph of a flower that you admire (someone else's work) and a few thoughts you'd like to share, please email me and I'll set up a post for you.
