Limes on the Side

"Limes on the Side"
8" x 10"
Oil on canvas panel
They were rolling off the table during my photo shoot.  I dropped one into the bowl and liked how the facet refracted the color. I put all of them into the bowl, except the two on the side. 

This is the companion piece to the smaller study I posted on February 11th.  My favorite part? The lime with the stem end pointing straight as us. She turned out exactly right. 

Thank you for squeezing me into your day!

  1. Really lovely, Carol! The facets of the cut glass are beautifully rendered. (How I envy your ellipse!) The whole painting is really beautiful, with all the grays against the bright greens of the limes.

  2. Virginia, Thank you for your kind words. I especially like your parenthetical sentence of longing! It was very funny, and a hard ellipse to nail! I'm glad it reads well. I was going to put a bottle of Patron tequila in the dark, empty corner, but thought better of it. It stands on its own, sans alcohol... probably better, in fact. :-)
