And the lime makes its appearance once more. I like the darker colors of this painting. Oddly, I began this painting by deciding what kind of shapes I wanted to paint, and then found the objects that best suited the shapes and lines. The object that determined the color scheme was the art postcard behind the dish. My grandmother had sent it to me when I was twelve, and for some wonderful reason, I found it recently. So magical to read her words to me. So maybe I added the rose because of that.


  1. I love the blue under the rose and the way it is echoed in the dish and the little touch of blue behind the rose.

  2. That's a nice story too. I love the vibrant rich color!


Thanks for commenting on my art! Marie
