Jeffrey Hayes

This is a collection of my own paintings. I paint still life almost exclusively; I find it offers unlimited challenges to my imagination, and allows me to deeply refine what I consider to be beautiful

Jeffrey Hayes: "Green Apple No. 4" · Oil on Panel · 4x4 inches · 2010

This painting is in the tradition of Spanish kitchen still life paintings, also known as Bodegóns. These often austere paintings focus on the common objects we have all around us, and in particular those related to food and its preparation. Eating is our most basic need, and taste is such a strong sense; paintings in this genre speak to us in such a basic way. Add to that the inherent color and beautiful textures of much of what we eat, and you have a painting that speaks on so many levels.

Today's Painting for You: "Quintet on Golden Brocade" - Jeffrey Hayes

Today’s painting for you: “First Among Equals”, Oil on Canvas, 20×50 inches, 2013 At 20×50 inches, I think this is my biggest painting so far, and to me it felt like painting a mural. It now graces a corporate boardroom in Kansas City, which was an unexpected and delightful destination for it. I hope they are enjoying it, and I hope you do as well!

Today's painting for you: "Orange Slices and Glass", Oil on Canvas, 30x24 inches, 2008 I often have the sneaking feeling that I'm not supposed to like my older paintings - especially those that I made close to the beginning of my career. That's because I've presumably improved somewhat in the intervening years. While it's true there are some paintings from that time that I just would not show today, there are many - this one included - that I still like tremendously. I hope...

Today's painting for you: "Sushi No. 30", Oil on Panel, 4x10 inches, 2011 I've painted a lot of sushi in my career. A lot - as you can see from the title of this painting. The narrowly focused lighting from above made this composition especially dramatic. I hope you enjoy it!
