Jug with Pomegranates
(24" x 24", oil on canvas)

Pomegranates are back in the stores, so you can expect to see a few pieces featuring this colour-loaded fruit. Here I've paired the whole fruit with an equally bold shaped jug. Keeping both partially in shadow softens the massive shapes, while the intricate detail of the opened fruit and scattered seeds in the foreground provide a nice contrast.
