"Olive Mug & Pomegranate"




















6 x 6 oil on canvas panel SOLD

Here is another painting of the gift fabric
from
Irit Bourla. She picks out the coolest
stuff! Thanks
one more time, Irit!

I love being surprised by fabric. It forces me to
rethink what I might have originally done by
being confronted
with an entirely unplanned pattern.
So if any of you see
a fabric they think would be a
good fit for my cups,
send it on!

Yo Gwen! I love this palette! I'm into extremes lately- lovely muted neutrals, then wham! bam! pow! saturated color. On this one I think you did a particularly good job of letting the fabric fade off into the distance. Lovely reflections too; but then you have that one down! Its's just one of the many things you do so well.

Wonderfully subdued palette in this one, it works brilliantly. There's a taste of autumn in the air here...

Great glossy finish! - especially in contrast with the matte fruit skin. Serious concentration on the still-life genre is paying off- Expert work!
And "Paisly Plums" is wow!- Exceptional! The rare piece, that entertains the eye for a very long time!

Wonderfully painted and great reflections. Great addition, adding the pomegranate. It may be the first pomegranate painting I've seen (except for the Dutch masters).

I love it! Wonderful reflection, and colour choices. This is such a fantastic series that you have been doing - complicated fabrics that you make work so well with your objects. Great stuff!

Wonderfully rich and warm color palette. I love how a piece of fabric can give a still life setup so much personality and invoke so many memories; it really seems to personalize the painting.
