This Fly Is Going Nowhere…

Following on from yesterday’s post, is the painting by Wilfried van den Boorn listed as No.6 on the price list.

I only managed to photograph about half of the paintings, therefore the number of the paintings in the price list will not correlate with the number of posts I am making here.

This painting is captioned as: “Still Life with Flower Bulbs” and the asking price was Euro 1.350,–

This exhibition is entitled “Overview of Still-lifes From 2008-2019”, and yes, at first glance I did indeed think these were onions on the table.

That thought was quickly dispelled though, because onions look quite different close up.

I love this painting, as my eyes roam around the composition I see the detail in the dark background leaves, the two little glass vases, pieces of marble, and even the dead fly. (at least the subject didn’t move during the painting process).
