Peaches and Apricots Frieze Still Life


(in-progress painting, with my studio in the background)
Peaches and Apricots Frieze – 5 1/2” x 24” Linen on Panel

This weekend I began another Frieze painting. This still life includes fruit like the other frieze paintings have had, however to mix things up a bit I also am including a salvaged tile and an antique cigar box.

Below is a detail of the painting.

Hi Liz, I like the long format and the variety of the sizes of fruit you have chosen. The blue tile works well with the orange color of the peaches too.

Thanks Frank! I am glad you like the way the blue tile and orange of the fruit work together. When setting this still life up, an analagous palette was in my mind, however I also wanted to add a bit of fun with a complementary color.

The tile looks great. Nice painting! Looking forward to seeing it finished.

Thanks Sarah. I need to go buy more fruit, the light "cooked" these!
