Boxes, Bottle, Cup and Bowl

16"x20" oil on canvas. Time for a larger painting. I love these Morandi-like set ups. Morandi's compositions were simple and complex along with a healthy dose of "visually challenging". Often the spaces between his subjects were as important as the subjects themselves (if not more so). I very often move things around on the canvas to suit my purpose and this painting is no exception (what's a few gallons of extra paint anyway?). The boxes on the left migrated farther west as the painting progressed and the tabletop drop-off on the right became more apparent.
