Still Life by Francisco de Zurbarán at the Norton Simon Museum of Art + Website Update...



I took this photograph of "Still Life with Lemons, Oranges and a Rose" by Francisco de Zurbarán at the Norton Simon Museum of Art.  I feel it has a powerful draw.  To Catholics of the 17th century, this painting would have had deep symbolic religious meaning.  It is the only signed and dated piece by this master of the Seville school of painting.  I find its beauty inspiring.

Al-Rubaie Art is a contemporary master when comes to still life paintings.  She does some of the most amazing paintings I have ever seen, if you have a chance, take a look at her magnificent paintings.

"An Auspicious Collection" Original Painting SOLD
Open Edition 5"x7" Giclee Prints & Limited Edition Giclee ACEO Prints Here

This is one of my rare still life paintings.  I was inspired by the theme of five random things.  It has a lucky cat, a cherry, a pretty ribbon, a pear, and a heart shaped nut shell...  The piece has a soft realist feel.  Although I no longer have the original, I do have this piece available as prints and ACEOs!

Every week on Tuesday, I try to list a small original, some giclee art prints, and giclee LE ACEO prints at promotional prices. Visit here to see what I have available this week!
