Clementines {a daily painting} & Thanks

Clementines – 6" x 8" (15.25 x 20.3 cm) – Oil Canvas Panel

Hello ~

Like many artists, I am inspired by Julian Marrow-Smith’s Shiftinglight “Postcards from Provence” paintings. The still life paintings that absolutely draw me in for extended periods of time are the ones with multiple items that also have a highly reflective object, usually in the shadow depths. This was my attempt at capturing the lilting affect of playing off specific foreground objects with a provocative background object.

Thanks for your kind words about my post Wednesday. Your support and encouragement mean so much.

Your clementines look good enough to eat! I think I can smell them from here.

Hi Susan, thanks and yes I love how fragrant they are. I am glad I am through with the painting as I have been snacking on them :)
