Sunny Escape - Lemons & Blue Glass





6"x6" oil on gessoed masonite archival artboard

"The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day he created Spring."

-Bern Williams


It's good to be back in the studio again! As I was arranging this bowl of lemons, one seemed to be trying to make it's escape (off to the right), so he wouldn't get sliced up like the ones on the left! But the most wonderful thing about posing your models (these lemons) in a strong light, is looking for the wonderful color reflections and the colors in the cast shadows. It's the thing I've really been pursuing in these recent still life set ups! And yes, each painting always makes me look forward to 'the next one'!

Thanks Norma, these still-life set-ups have been really fun in my continued exploration of color!
