"Orange and Red Ribbon" 4x4 inches o/b
I very often find that things I happen to see around the house are posed more interestingly and natural than anything I can try and set up. I see a towel on the bathroom sink, or the way I happened to toss the fruit onto the kitchen counter after unpacking groceries..... and I think...that's perfect just the way it is! .. how come I can't seems to do that on purpose??? This orange and ribbon were set aside on the table in my studio room and caught my attention, I painted them just the way I found them. I used this small panel that I had "primed" with a mix of zinc white and raw umber, to try something different. I liked it very much, and want to try it again. Maybe even try to do more "found" subjects in my paintings.
