Piece description from the artist
This is a collection of antique bottles that a friend of mine has. They remind me of a bit of Morandi and the still lifes he used to paint. With lovely cool blues and warm browns this painting will sit nicely in any environment.
Originally from upstate New York, Elizabeth Tucker moved to Southern California in her early twenties. While she had always worked with her hands in the "needle arts":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Needlepoint, it was her husband who encouraged Elizabeth to begin drawing and painting when he gave her an easel as a gift. Seeking teachers who would instruct her in the classical tradition, Elizabeth studied at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art (LAAFA) and the Art Center College of Design and took private classes with artists "Ryan Wurmser":http://ryanwurmseratelier.blogspot.com/ and "Aaron Westerberg":http://www.westerberg-fineart.com.
Although the majority of her work is in oil, Elizabeth enjoys working in other mediums such as ink, pastel, block prints and watercolor.
A multi-award winning artist and certified instructor in the Michael Wilcox School of Colour, Elizabeth is a member of the "Pasadena Society of Artists":http://www.pasadenasocietyofartists.org, and "Women Painters West":http://www.womenpainterswest.org/home.html as well as the president of the "Angeles Crest Art Guild":http://www.angelescrestartguild.com/. :http://www.angelescrestartguild.com/.
