Historical Context:
In the early 1980’s, Michigan-based artist Mike McDonnell became enamored with still life arrangements of common household objects. He began by drawing each object individually, then patiently applied multiple glazes of watercolor paint to achieve rich color and the illusion of realism. In these still life compositions he strived to idealize common objects while he emphasized clean, precise, color and details.
