Three Oranges- Eat Pretty Things
Painting - Oil On Canvas
Eat Pretty Things- Three Oranges. I have been engaged in a series of oil paints for the past several years which I call 'eat pretty things' in which I set up fruits, veggies or other goodies with lighting directed to add interest. In this one I improvised the back ground to compliment the primary color of the image focus. I will take orange and turquoise together in any realm. The splashes of orange and red spilling down onto the foreground and the blob of orange in the upper right hand corner helped this painting come alive. I love when that happens. This painting 'three oranges' hangs in my living room, and I think it is one of the most striking paintings I have created to date. The size of the canvas helps add heft.
