Posey


I appologize for the slight amount of glare on the photo. I am trying to find a position to photograph my paintings and the sun is shifting making the place that I normally photograph unacceptable. I will try and rephotograph.
These begonias are ready to be planted by I love the look of them in the little black plastic growing containter. The orange slices were added to capture the luscious rays of the sun as they passed through the transluscent flesh. Whil in Connecticut I found the nicest 1940's tablecoth with a cute vibrant design and this is what is placed under the still life. You can actually only see the few blue sqares of blue design in the upper right hand corner of the painting. It is as much about what you leave out as what you leave in a painting.

Very nice. I have been painting some flowers lately, with all the rain we are having I am not been able to get out and around!

A LOVELY composition, Linda. The colors are spread in a pleasant way, and how clever you are to make something of the lowly little plastic container.This is really a "slice of life"
