6x6 inch Original Oil Painting

I have to be honest; this painting was simply an excuse to play with light and color. It was pure self-indulgence. One goal was to capture the translucent quality of the orange slice where the light seems to glow through the fruit. It’s a tricky thing to get just right, and I think I nailed it with this painting. What do you think? You can click on the image for a larger view.

I also liked the colors, especially the contrast of blue and orange together. They compliment each other nicely. Overall I was very pleased with this one. I feel it’s a tasty little piece someone will love. Time will tell.

Make me an offer if you’re interested. tombrownart@gmail.com I accept PayPal and personal checks. I ship to the U.S. only, however. To see paintings in my eBay store, click the headline. Thanks for looking.

Today’s thought to smile about:
Finding the perfect little still life for that spot on the wall!

My first thought was how lovely the light looks through the slice of orange. It almost looks good enough to eat. Beautiful
