Today's painting is 8x8 inches on a stretched canvas. Originally there was another painting underneath, but I didn't like it. It had been kicking around in my studio for a while; I hated to toss it and had planned to take the canvas off and replace it with new canvas. On an impulse I began painting right on top of the existing painting. The foreground is the original, but the limes and the white plate emerged as I continued painting. Though the perspective is off, I like the abstract quality of it. I may eventually sell it, but in the meantime, I'm enjoying having this new little painting in my house.
