Little Cutie (Sold)


I love the little changes that occur from the beginning to the end of a painting. The light changes, and the fruit/flowers seem to have a mind of their own. A sliced apple will begin to brown. Tulips dance. And as I learned last night, orange peels twist, turn and begin to boogie  shrivel. It's one of my favorite aspects of painting from life.

I hope you're having a great week!

I could never call your work "Cute". It is too masterful..too fine art. This is lovely and I like the flow and 'boogie" of the peel
