Odd Man Out



Odd Man Out.

6x6in oil on canvas board   SOLD

Yes - that is a lime on top of the lemons.
Running late as I was painting on something else today and forgot the time.
This is a Mexican, hand-blown glass bowl with deep, greeny blue tones at the base.
Heavy, but lovely with its imperfections.

  1. I love how you are handling the impression of glass. "Lemonade" was also exquisite! Karen B.

  11. Rich yellow with flickering cerulean blue blicks. And the fresh green on a top, like a cherry on the cake.
    Superb!
