A Lemon and a Pomegranate
(24" x 36", oil on canvas)

Happy New Year and welcome to the seventh year of my Painting of the Week program.

After a nice break I returned to my easel inspired by the colours of past festivities. I very deliberately paired the saturated hues of the fruit with the neutral vase, allowing reflections to shape the contour. I was particularly sensitive to the sharp edges of the fruit against the soft edges of the cloth and the disappearing edge of the vase.
