Walking on Eggshells


It took me a long time to put this still life set up together. I knew internally what I was looking for and it took much shuffling and evaluating until I achieved the combination that spoke to me. I used an extremely simple palette in this painting...cad red med, permanent alizarin crimson, cad orange, cad lemon, cad yellow lt, ultra blue, dioxazine purple and white.

Your brushwork has totally inspired me. This has a fresh immediate quality that I like. And the title is fun too.

Beautiful vibrant color and very abstract feel to this! It looks like you set it up in intense sunlight.
Also like your sensitive drawing of bananas . . .
