Lemons and Rice Bowl Still Life

Lemons and Rice Bowl – 7-1/4” x 17” (18.5 x 43 cm)


Most of Sunday afternoon was spent completing this painting. It was set up to use only natural light and being that we are scheduled for some cloudy days ahead I was eager to complete it with a sunny outside, the same lighting conditions for the first few phases of the painting.

In other news over the weekend I found out that the 2nd floor of Artomatic was reviewed by Kevin Mellema of the Fall Church News Press in the Northern Virginia Art Beat column and my work was mentioned. This is my first experience receiving press, and it is kinda exciting. Here is the article.

Have a wonderful afternoon, Liz

Here is a detail of the rice bowl.

Wow...that rice bowl is fantastic! The whole painting is lovely, but I can really sense the age and patina of the bowl. Congrats on the press piece! Falls Church News today, Washington Post tomorrow!

LA, I too love lemons, that is why they are so often my painting subjects. You always bring together interesting images, I am looking forward to your lemon post.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting, Liz

Thanks Paula! I have had the bowl for awhile, I love how there is nothing uniform about it.
