How painting students must suffer the "What is it" question! The challenge of any still life is to meditate on what you see in front of you and make it have meaning, a feeling, and even a mood. My students, who range from beginner to slightly more and interested to uninterested, had 45 minutes to set up, execute, and clean up. They had about 5 class days depending on their schedules to finish their 8 x 10 inch canvas panels.
