Studies in Yellow

The reason I paint so many still lifes is because I never have to check the fruits' schedules to see if they are available for me to paint. As long as the Hazel household can avoid eating the set up, I can paint. The ridiculously cold weather last week made painting indoors preferable, so I set up my willing models and began.

The new excessively happy yellow dining room was the backdrop for the latest still life, Studies in Yellow. The lemons came from a neighbor's yard, and the grapefruit and tangerines came from the farmer's market. The yellow bowl came from the Blue Bird Circle Shop as did the dresser on which it sits. The painting is a 16" x 20" oil on linen.
