I’m working on a variation of the vintage electric fan. I’ve added a few more shapes to the composition and will be adding several layers of glazes focusing on the surface of the glasses and fan. Fascinating, huh? If you want to see some simply beautiful still life with geometric shapes, check out the work of Volkert Olij.

After this piece, I’m going to be working smaller. When I started this fan, I thought it would be easier than the typewriter, but the truth is the typewriter has so many tiny little details that you can sort of wing it.

    Hi! Christopher Stott,
    Your painting of the “big” fan looks great!…(and so do your studio…I know, I know) Btw, the artwork of artist, Volkert Olij, kind of, remind me of Rembrandt Harmensz, Van Rijn paintings or “chiaroscuro” paintings?!?.

    Thanks, for sharing!… the progression of your painting and the link.
    Deedee ;-D

    Hi! Christopher Stott,
    Know wonder I think that artist Volkert Olij,
    art work remind me of Rembrandt Harmensz, Van Rijn, artwork after further inspection of his(Olij) blog, I discovered…Just like Rembrandt, Volkert Olij is Dutch too!…Therefore, he may want to “paint” in the same “vein” if you will, as his fellow countryman/men.
    Deedee ;-D
