Ed Penniman’s still lifes will be presented at Melville Tavern in Monterey (484 Washington St., Monterey), the restaurant owned by his son, Ian Penniman, from mid-January. The painting above is titled “Apple Pie II”. The Capitola-based artist writes of his process, “When I see it, I know I want to paint it. Seeing beautifully is a key part of creating engaging and moving artwork. The Chouinard School of Art taught me as much to feel art as to make art. In the creative process, there are many things that motivate me. Above all, I want to share a spiritually uplifting moment with another. At 42, Penniman was stricken with Guillain-Barré syndrome, known as French poliomyelitis, which left him paralyzed, and he learned to paint while recovering. To learn more, visit [AP]
