EBSQ Spotlight on Still Life: Shelly Bedsaul

This month’s featured gallery is Still Life. A still life is a collection of inanimate objects depicted in an artistic composition and is a genre that has always been a staple for artists. Setting up a still life is an exercise in composition. Painting or photographing the composition is an exercise in technique. The result of these efforts is a work of art. Throughout the month of January, we are going to take a few moments to catch up with some of EBSQ’s still life artists.

I collect teapots. I LOVE coffee, fresh flowers and I hate housework. My still life drawings combine my three loves and provide a place to look, in my home, where everything is neat and tidy. I’ve even called them “fantasy art”. Organization is still a fantasy for me. Seriously, I also enjoy the challenge of pattern, texture and mood. I’d like them to be reminders for us to slow down our day to day and take a moment to savor. – Shelly Bedsaul
