Purple Prose


A Painting A Day
Certified Original Art © 2007
Still Life Food SeriesI had a bag of plums that broke open on the counter under just the light from the stove hood.
Grabbed the camera and took natural light shots, just wanting to catch the darkness of the shadows and the purple and slight blue hues of the plums. Plums are so smooth that I wanted to see what reflections I could get from the opposite, heavy textured gesso canvas on which this is painted.

Details: 8 x 10 x 1 inch, Oil on Gesso Canvas Hardwood, Cradle back.
Blended finish on all sides.
Certificate of Appraisal included in your name.

  1. The composition is wonderful, how you can take the little shapes and create the greater whole.

  4. I was drawn to the plums because I bought some yesterday at Krogers to see how they’d appear photographed. Yours look wonderful.
