"Set of Limes", oil on canvas, four 8" x 10" canvases
Another request from the "Forbidden Fruit" show was a series of lime pieces. I was happy to oblige, and the result is seen above. The small studies once again beg for a home on the coast, evoking summer with their cheery disposition and color palette. These will be available for sale in Bella Cucina starting next week, along with larger studies of limes to follow.
As much as I love the precious quality of small paintings, especially when grouped together, I am eager to paint REALLY large... 5ft and up. For some reason, something as common as a lime seems to take on an entirely different role when it's is taken out of it's comfort zone. When enlarged, I get the sense that the fruit seems to take on an almost humanistic quality, with more presence on the canvas and opportunity to abstract the subject.
My next show I am leaning towards larger than life pieces. Will post them soon for y'all's preview.
