Spoon Bridge


Oil on 1/8" Board. Approx 6"x6" SOLD

Here is this month's challenge painting. The challenge was to use an apple, a spoon and glass. The really hard part for me was coming up with an interesting composition. For me this would make it or break it. This is the one I settled on.

Another gorgeous and powerful painting, Michael! The strong abstract design, amazing perspective and wonderfully subtle colors make for a dramatic painting that looks 10 times the size it actually measures. I love it!

Oh wow...and what a composition you came up with at that!! It is marvelous! Your work is stunning!

My hat's off to you for your ingenious design, Michael: the two matching circles in opposite corners tied together with the spoon... the spoon bridge!

It's whiimsical and beautiful. I really like the way the solid rich red apple plays against the hollow clear cylinder of the glass. There is a lot of tension even though they are at rest. And that spoon... I can just hear the metal clink against the glass!

Love our composition and simplicity. Been following your work for a while through Daily Paintworks. Was wondering if I could be part of the monthly challenge? Or is it a closed group?

Mike!

The unique composition and the bird's-eye-view is what makes this painting a winner!

I love your brush strokes, and colour combinations! Inspiring. I haven't done an official painting in a while, and I think you might have just sparked a little something in me. Thank you for sharing your beautiful works of "heart".
