Red and Yellow--Original Oil Painting

One of my favorite activities is buying colorful produce just for painting. This little 6x6 inch oil painting is the result of a recent trip to the grocery store. I loved the rich red of this colorful onion. It was fun to paint the dry stem and papery skin while it sat in front of a butter colored plate. I also have some lemons and limes sitting in my refrigerator. They may end up on canvas, too, joining some of my other small still life paintings for sale at Small Impressions Gallery. This little painting can be purchased for $36.00 plus $6.50 for shipping to US addresses.

Me too. I am all about the wild ripe colors of fresh farmed food.

Well done.

What a beautiful effect! The hue contrasts and play of the shadow vs. light is very effective.

Thanks so much! I like to play with abstractions in still life along with rendering the subject itself.
