A collection of masterful still life paintings, mostly in oil.

Oil on paper(also works on canvas) (large works) represented by High-Gallery Shanghai Series of works based on ancient Chinese poems - images of court ladies, interiors. Use of copper oxide green and oxidish reds/caputmorts creates a textured acrylic ground veil-like turps washes allowed to drip. Use of white wash to obscure drawing underneath.
This is a collection of favorite still life paintings I've found over the years. I have a particular interest in the oil medium, but occasionally include works in other media, even the odd photo of a nice vase or flower. I hope it will provide a resource for still life painters and art lovers.
There are a few paintings of interiors, and some botanical paintings, which are not really classified as still life, but they fit better here than in my landscape or figurative painting blogs (see links).
