Lighting, shadowing, perspective are all great. It has that "homey" feel to it.

because of the theme I think is very deep is not just a bathroom is the mood, is the place of intimity, you alone in the mirror with your thoughts, the day of lifes everyday maybe the monotony, the blind crooked the outside a little space of reality is like "you have to confront the world" with all the problems the pills the stress, that little place of honesty when you are alone.. its not a perfect bathroom all white and shiny and clean is messy, opaque almost clautrofobic, all the medicine is not good can you imagine a person taking all that medicine everyday? have to be hard...thats why I like it so much and off course the technique is excellent, the colors, the atmosphere, the details..excellent piece in my opinion :)

Honestly, this is the exact kind of stuff I don't like. You got some pill-popping beatnik who paints a mundane(and slightly depressing) scene from their lives that "tells a story" ...and that's a prize winner. No doubt your oil painting skills are far beyond that which any troll like me would aspire to, but don't quit either of your day jobs, because those antidepressants are costly. Like I said, you have skill, but your gallery is just so unamazing.

Thanks, redhedsaysrawr! The initial story was just a slice of life type of thing. The title, "In the Morning" referred to the daily routine of someone on a lot of medication, perhaps an elderly person. It's sort of about me, as well, as I've had some health problems over the years and been on various medications, primarily for blood pressure, so I've amassed quite a collection of pill bottles (which I've used in many other still life paintings). I've had friends read various other things into it such as recreational drug use and such. I'm fine with that as I think it's fun to hear other people's interpretations of an image.

Thanks, n8beezy! I've had a couple of people from the internet tell me they have the same bathroom. Which is kind of hilarious. I guess that "style" of bathroom used to be "in!" :)

A worth winner, full of the atmosphere of quiet desparation that pervades some of Hopper's paintings of urban America [link] .

It has great conviction; the sort of 'this is how it was' inevitability and natural look of some of the great Hopper paintings.
