There are painters who I admire with a particularly terrible sort of envy. French artist Daniel Enkaoua is one such painter. Lettuce Still Life by Daniel Enkaoua Cups Still Life by Daniel Enkaoua

Through smudged and broken brushwork, Enkaoua achieves a hazy, soft focus view of his subjects that somehow transcend the physicality of the subject. His images strike me as memories or dreams, indistinct but wholly revealed. In contrast, I have a tendency to paint every detail and to refine every shape half to death. I really need to keep reminding myself that every edge need not be sharply rendered.
