" Clementines "
6" x 6"
This simple arrangement seemed straight forward, however what gave me fits was getting the tiny sliver of fabric the fruit is setting on right. It had to be light but still read as light blue green. So I made the fabric in shadow darker than I was seeing.
In the beginning of this blog I set a goal of one small painting a day for one year. While I didn't reach my goal, I did complete 125 small daily paintings. I still enjoy the tiny format and do them when I can.
This is my 30th year as a professional painter and yet with this new goal I feel like it's a new beginning. I am very excited. Each daily painting will be auctioned on eBay starting at $100. So, without further ramblings I launched the first of 365 little oils on October 22, 2007!
