Happy Father's Day-Still Life

Close ups

This is my contribution to this week's DPW Challenge. This week, it's the Gift Challenge presented by Carol Marine.

I decided to combine it with Father's Day to kill two birds with one stone.

In looking back at some of my older art on this blog, I felt my present style is getting more understated...laid back...even ho hum perhaps???
So I decided to kick painting inhibitions in the butt with this one, and add plenty of color pizazz!
I must admit, it feels great! Exciting again!
At this point, I don't know if it's over done or too wild to even hold together as art.
I'll let you decide that for me with your comments (if you will be so kind).

Romans 12:21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.


  1. Fun concept. Love the bow

  2. You have overcome ho-hum, Dean, that is for sure!

  3. Dean, this is just as amazing as all your other work. Never ho hum, never understated, but seriously always beautiful. I love your work. This piece has some beautiful color and I love the "gift wrapping" so to speak of this piece. What a nice idea for a dad who wears bow ties and likes the occasional glass of wine! Scrumptious!

  4. kind of reminds me of advertising (the 60's a little bit, you know, smooth guy with a tux type of thing)...fact is I love advertising, especially the nostalgic type--so I happen to love this

  5. I definitely looks special with the bow!
