Still Life with Lemon and Brown Bottle

Still Life with Lemon and Brown Bottle

I am drawn to painting the fleeting beauty found in ordinary objects, such as this brown bottle and lemon. I love how color notes in this brown bottle shift from brown to blue or purple in areas, and how the reflections from my studio window captures the colors of the sky and winter vegetation beyond. Then where light is reflected off the lemon onto the bottle, notes of yellow appear.

To me, panting such scenes are opportunities to slow down and find ways to appreciate the simple things in life.

Today, I encourage you to notice a reflection on a shiny surface, see how many colors you can discern. You may well be surprised by how many there are.
