Concentrated Limeade


I wish you could really see how thick and juicy the paint and brush strokes are in this painting.I think I am trying to outsmart light deprivation syndrome with the color choices on my palette lately by creating these fresh spring like colored paintings. I love these goblets and I don't use them much because I am afraid one will get broken, the glass is very fragile. So painting them is the next best thing to using them. I plan on doing a really large painting on black gesso of one of these goblets. 11x14 oil on gessoed hardboard. c2009

The lusciousness and juiciness of your paint is coming through very clearly. What a stunning painting.
