Lemon on Saucer




Lemon on Saucer

6x8in  oil on canvas board   SOLD


This was a demo for the Guild this morning.
Believe it or not, I own a set of these funky dishes with wonderful colors
and patterns on them. Had them many, many, years, used them every day and still love them.
Not for the faint of heart for sure!

Artist Note.

I did a yellow, green and orange wash to start off with.
Painting is not completed yet.

  1. Gorgeous painting...and can I borrow your plates? No really...so lovely...like Frida Kahlo plates...that's what I thought of when I saw them. The colors and shapes on them perhaps?

    1. You would love the plates. Porcelain and yes...Kahlo colors. They brighten any day and all are different patterns.
