Still Life with Hula Dancer (NFS)

oil on canvas, 40″x30″



I painted Still Life with Hula Dancer shortly before I left California and moved back to the east coast. I wanted to paint an image so that I could remember some of the beautiful objects in the house where I was living and to remind myself of my dream to move to Hawaii. An split leaf plant, an orchid, a book about Hawaii, and and antique hula dancer set the mood for this lush still life painting.
