"Kitchen Counter" oil on board, 9 x 12"

It occurred to me that I had hardly seen any contemporary still life paintings that showed things like microwave ovens and coffee makers. It seems a lot of  still life painters are still doing things like fruit and flowers and trying to make their paintings look like "old masters". But the masters were painting things of their time, so why shouldn't we paint the objects of our time?
