Reflecting Neighbors


Oil on 3/8" Board. Approx 8"x8" SOLD

I picked up this cup at a local resale shop. I love this style of mug. I think it's enamel plated...or something. Typically used when camping. Right? Anyway, it looked good with that lemon next to it. We have our next challenge painting coming up quick here. I think Sunday is when we post it. Keep an eye out.

I really like the composition of these last two. There seems to be an added psychological element as if the objects are balancing on a ledge or crossing a bridge.

Wonderful small painting! Great effect is achieved with economy of colors. Reflection of lemon in the cup is marvelous.
