Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin and Me

I have admired and so loved the quietness of Chardin's work for years. These gloriously timeless works have inspired my latest paintings. The one above being the first completed. I am excited about what he has taught me through the brush strokes he left on his canvas.

The jug in the painting, I found during my Christmas visit to San Antonio. One of my sisters, spoiled me by taking me to the cutest antique shop I have ever entered and gifted me a gorgeous antique glass vase and a beautiful enamel container, both of which I can't wait to include in still lifes.
