"Before Lunch" (sold)

Oil on Board
I really enjoy how things almost take on a different life when you focus in on them--I think a part of me almost expects them to get up and move! This painting reminds me of the workshop I took with Carol Marine and all she shared with us--good stuff on composition, edges and color.

Fun painting with wonderfully subtle colors, including in the shadows. I like the balance between abstraction and realism in your apple wedges.

I did think this was Carol Marines when I saw it on Daily Painters. She must be a good teacher and you a good student. Very nice. Barb

Good to see you back on the horse so to speak Vicki.
Nice piece here, really love the way you cropped the composition.
Lovely use of colour.
