Fruit & Flowers

     Fruit & Flowers              oil             12" x 12"

    detail - Fruit & Flowers

I painted in big juicy brushstrokes today using an old photo source I've always liked. Years ago I painted this still life with a group in Coeur d'Alene.. At the time, It was set up with a tapestry rug behind it all and the color palette was red and more red. At the time, I painted a cropped version in acrylic and still have that painting. Today I used a photo from that day and included it all. 

Pin It

Bonjour chère Mary,

Je suis sous le charme de cette superbe composition aux nuances de couleurs extraordinaires... Il n'est pourtant pas facile de travailler tous ces rouges et certains même qui n'en sont pas !
Je dirais simplement, EXCELLENT !! et BRAVO l'artiste.

❀ Gros bisous ❀
