"Burrito Stand"


9"x12"
Oil on Board
for purchase information contact River Bend Fine Art Gallery

When I started this painting a couple of weeks ago, I was overwhelmed by the color, scraped it off and changed my palette to three colors plus white and sat there looking at it for the past two weeks thinking how boring it was! So yesterday afternoon, I went back to it and brought out the colors I started with and finished it. I have to admit, I really like the bright colors! I think maybe it has been good to have a break. This painting will be in a show next month, so it is not for sale right now.

Hi Vicki - its been a little while since I visited - I really love this one! Colors are perfect, and the cast shadows on the red stand just make everything glow in the sun. Very Nice!

It IS a beauty.
You had to let it 'bake' for a while but you nailed the finish. I can see that you had a strong block in. Good darks to put the lights on. NICE.
