Bucket Full of Leeks is a classic still life composition, with just a touch of wordplay thrown in for fun. The image features a galvanized tin bucket, filled with fresh leeks, atop a weathered wooden crate.
I painted Bucket Full of Leeks early on, just as I was starting to think differently about what a still life could be.
By all measures, Bucket Full of Leeks is a representational painting - everything looks just like it would in reality. But I snuck my love of abstract art in here, too. The texture of the tin bucket was painted with abstract techniques; I used scrunched up paper to daub numerous layers of paint, mottling the texture until I achieved the look of real tin.
If you like Bucket Full of Leeks, I invite you to view its companion piece, Choke Hold, painted around the same time and with a similar straight-forward pun appeal.
