game change


This was supposed to be a red, and blue 4th of July themed still life.  I started with beautiful cherries and blueberries.  Played around with that and was not happy with any of the set ups. Decided to punt our national holiday theme. Decided to add lemons and let it be composed of the three primary colors.  Was not pleased with that either so this is what you are left with.  I have to be happy with the set up or it is going to go south fast.  This is painted on an 8 x 10" linen panel.

I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend.    Happy Independence Day!!


  1. Carol, there is a refreshing aspect to this that is hard to beat. And I'm actually craving water with a lemon in it now! LOL I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your timely and oh so supportive and loving comments. I don't get a lot of that but it sure helps when I'm at my lowest. Thank you for caring too.

  2. Very realistic and beautifully painted, Carol! The lemons look wonderful as well as the transparency in the glass!

  3. I loved and totally understood the progression you related about your steps taken. I think you ended up with a good one. I really love the glass.
