"Orange Slices"

30 in 30
Day 10
Oranges are a wonderful still life subject and is so pretty with blue.  It is a cheery subject for a cold and foggy day.  This is a palette knife painting on a 8" x 8" panel.


  1. This is a wonderful piece. I am studying art at college in England and I was wondering whether you could comment on what you, as the painter, feel was the purpose of this painting? Thank you! Endre

  2. Dear Endre, Thank you for your comment. As a studio painter, it is important to paint still life once in awhile to keep sharp in seeing shadows and depth that you don't get in photographs. I was also in challenge to paint 30 paintings in 30 days. The complimentary colors were a joy paint.
