What Was I Thinking?

Still life painting of a pineapple by Helen Davison

‘The Last Pineapple’. Oil on linen, 20″ x 16″

In my mind I had the cool detachment and sophistication of Euan Uglow’s still life paintings… what I painted was this oddity. Honestly, I don’t know quite what I was thinking, this just doesn’t work for me.

On the positive side of things, it’s probably the best I have painted this kind of cloth effect. Maybe it’ll grow on me. I doubt it.
