Apples and lemons are a lovely combination and kind of what I had around my kitchen. I do love their respective color.
This still life is an extension of my last one “Still Life Sonata”. In my heart I think I wanted to continue on with a softer palette of colors but then there were the apples and lemons. As I put this together I wasn’t so certain of the dramatic contrast but I think it works over all.
I feel a sense of peacefulness within the painting and perhaps passion is indicated as I look at it now in the red and yellow.
As far as where I will go next within the context of a still life I’m not sure. The softer palette is appealing to me so I may start from there in terms of selecting the next arrangement.
