I previously wrote about my painting, Fruit at the Tea House. I plan to make a few minor changes before I post if for sale. This painting has a dominant warm temperature; this is contrasted with the cool temperature of the melon and front shelf. The design is primarily circular. There are also strong vertical and horizontal lines and shapes. The background has vertical lines but it also has strong horizontal shapes for balance and contrast. The front shelf has strong horizontal shapes. The bananas are mainly diagonal but combine to a reverse triangular shape. Like many of my still life paintings, my objects are close to the picture plane (the flat surface and the transparent plane at the front of the painting). My forms are modeled to create a feeling of the third dimension and depth.
