Silver Spoon, Sugar Spoon, Lemon

" Silver Sugar Spoon with Lemon "
Oil
6"x6"
How many ways can you paint a lemon? Or a glass plate? Guess this is my lemon with glass plate series number 3 this week. I knew I had paint left from yesterday's lemon painting and with the economy I'm feeling very frugel. Besides, when you choose similar objects or paint the same landscape view over and over you don't have to rethink everything, yet each will have its own character.
I chose a white napkin because I wanted a "high key" painting, lots of light values: more feminine than yesterday's bold reds and greens and stripes.

Jennifer,
You've done another wonderful painting...It has a softness about it. Not sure if it is the color choices or the technique you used. Love the contrast between the "sugar spoon" and the lemon. It tantalizes the senses...the old sweet sour thing. Nicely done.

Thanks, Marsha. I put sugar cubes on my shopping list..that would make a more complete "story" with the sugar spoon..stay tuned.

Jennifer I love the delicate look that you have captured in this painting - the colors are just beautiful and I love that spoon!

Thanks, Karen. I'm off to the grocery store to buy some sugar cubes to try another version with this spoon. I love the shape of it and it was my mom's so that is meaningful to me. Thanks for visiting my blog today!

Thanks, Ginnyntex. I do enjoy these little oils..the set-ups are simple and simple is often best. I can get too involved with my larger paintings. Thanks for visiting.
