Still life paintings are fun. There is infinite variety, styles, techniques, colors, etc. to explore. The same still life on a different day will turn out differently for several reasons: different lighting, different emotions, different choice of colors, etc. Using a different brush can result in a new experience with an old subject. My still lifes so far tend to be more representational rather than impressionistic or "abstract."
An aside: canvas panels are not inferior supports for paintings. I have a painting by my mother's Sunday School teacher painted around 1930 that is still in excellent condition. Don't be afraid that canvas panels will deteriorate faster than other supports. No painting should be subjected to extremes of temperature, direct sunlight for long periods, or left "to the elements" in a barn-like storage. Sometimes damage can be repaired, but it is expensive.
NOTE: EXPECT TO REFRAME IMAGES. Commercial frames provide protection in shipment. Custom frames will have additional protection, but no guarantee against frame damage.
