Orange and Dishcloth {a daily painting}

Orange on Blue Striped Dishcloth – 8" x 6" (20 x 15.25 cm) – Oil Canvas Panel
After working on the Kitchen Series, painting draped cloth is a pleasure. This painting started out as one with half a loaf of homemade bread, and then as I was wrapping up the bread part I realized it just was too drab and brown, so I switched out an orange. I like to have something bright as the focus of a painting.

Hi, Liz! I just found your work from Tracey's site. What beautiful paintings! I decamped the corporate world to paint also. Your work is lovely. I also like the photo of Slim out for his r&r in the sun! Best to you. Liz
