In my still life paintings, I try to bring philosophical meaning to the items that enrich our lives: rustic heirlooms and keepsakes, or old family treasures of silver or copper. These items are brought to life with the addition of fruits or flowers.
A still life with copper pitcher and red vegetables suggests the makings of vegetable stock for cooking up a hearty broth. I switched to a more modern palette for this to capture the vibrancy of the onions and the radish. This painting would make a nice addition to a kitchen or dining room.
My name is L. Lawrence Bispo. I am a Vango artist who paints landscapes, portraits, and still lifes. I also at times teach portrait painting, figure drawing, observational drawing, and color theory. In addition to painting and drawing, I also write, compose music, and develop for the web. I always have a lot of sticks in the fire! For my day job, I teach (and sometimes do) web development. I also love spending time with my family: my beautiful wife Joy and our crazy dog Fiona. Thank you for visiting my portfolio!
