I was so fortunate to be able to spend time with artist David Cheifetz and study with him in a workshop he taught in East Texas. He is a magnificient oil painter and I thoroughly enjoyed the time in which he took studying a still life setup and deciding what attracts the artist to a particular object. The thought and mindfullness that he uses as he sets up a composition and executes the painting, is certainly a lesson in process and taking time with intention. I am looking forward to getting into the studio after this move is completed and playing in oil again.
This painting is one of the demos he did in the workshop, titled Demo with Twist of Saran. see David's work at www.davidcheifetz.com
