Sweet and Sour

Sweet and Sour
Oil 5x17 hardboard
I usually avoid more than two elements, unless its a landscape, so this was a fun challenge.  I found fruit looses that wonderful sheen when its first cut if you take to long to paint it.  Next time I either have to paint faster or have fruit on hand.  Perhaps maybe a stronger light so that its not to close to the fruit may help. What would probably be the best is to make a shadow box.


  1. Wow! Looking great Catherine.

    BTW, why don't you have a "bid" or "buy" button after your paintings? I see a number of blogs that have this feature. I'm not ready to do this but at some point I may---if I can figure out how.


  2. Thanks Chris.

    I know... but if I sold all my paintings online how would I have fun doing festivals. ;) There is a reason for it though.

    If you want to know how just email me its not hard to insert the code.
