Just Hangin' Out



I bought a set of these great mid century glasses in a variety of different colors. Each glass has a floral graphic design on it. The silk Iris was one that I had in my stash of still life material. These apples really are as big as they look.
I wanted to work with transparency and color. I feel that I acheived my goals in this painting. When I was done there was just a nice harmony between the colors and shapes.

You work so lightly, Linda, that the apples appear as if they are from glass! Wonderful transparent colours!

I agree Linda and even though subtle, the diagonal horizon is perfect! Lovely . . .

I must have been dreaming, because I thought I had already commented. These apples are great! I would love to see you do more of them. Right everybody? (:

Thank you so much for your kind comments...I think that I made some headway in this painting. I discovered by accident and then by reading that to get a painting to harmonize you include a little bit of each color in the various parts of the painting. What fun!!
