There is a difference between painting figure and still life.
Objects are easier for painting, they are static.
In figure, there are moves, there is life that has to be captured,
otherwise it would be just an empty shell.
To be honest, I am scared when I paint figures. Yet, I dare to do it,
because that is one of the things that makes us different than the objects:
Is this glue able to fix a relationship, I wonder.
This is how it begun:
My wife made cupcakes, so I thought it would be nice if I make large scale painting of 2 cupcakes.

We face the path of time
And yet I fight
And yet I fight
This battle all alone
No one to cry to
No place to call home…
