Lemon In A Blue Envelope
Oil on Canvas, 6" x 6"
$100 plus Shipping of $7.95 via priority mail
I can't imagine what this lemon was thinking when it tried to hide in this too-small envelope. What appealed to me about these two objects was the smooth, spherical nature of the fruit in contrast to the creased old envelope with its purple stamp. The contrast-pull of the complementary colors of stamp and lemon caught my eye too. There's something about the paper wrapping the fruit that I find oddly appealing. Anyway, I find this still life playful...and it was fun to paint.
