There are still life paintings and then there are these domestic oil paintings. Although they can easily be categorized in the former, it is hard to imagine these charming images as so easily dismissed into a single category. There is so much color and life to them that it would be a shame to do so. Not to mention that the style of the domestic oil paintings is quite eye-catching.

Created by Anna Valdez, the domestic oil paintings are particularly exceptional for the texture of the textiles, the vibrancy of the plants and the overall use of geometric patterns throughout. Valdez states, "These items exist as a part of my domestic environment and I have put them in my paintings to understand the domestic sphere as emblematic of both personal and collective experience."
