Awaiting Fate

Oil on 1/8" Board Approx 8"x8" SOLD

This poor little lemon. About to get sliced and diced. He sure will taste good squeezed into some iced tea, though.

I always marvel at how you manage to get such crisp images. I was going to say that about your steeple, but you've done it here too.
Love your work!

That was me... Somehow I clicked something before I meant to.

Beautiful painting...and the composition is great as usual!

Just wondering, what type of board do you paint on, Mr. Naples? The texture looks very coarse (which I like, by the way). Is it wood board or paper board?

Wonderful painting, Michael! I love the balance of this composition and the inherent drama you've portrayed.

great contours and composition Mike. unfortunately for that lemon, that knife looks blunt...

great contrast with the lighting. I love the way the lemon looks photographic, while the bowl is loose and painterly.

At first glance I almost thought this was a picture!

The dramatic lighting makes this piece, well, dramatic!

I love the blackness of the knife. It helps bring some of the darks to the lower right corner and balances everything out.

Bye-bye lemon!
