"Old Slices" (sold)

I set this up ten days ago but then never felt inspired to paint it. I guess the challenge of painting outside in freezing temperatures was too great. Today I woke to minus 10 so I didn't even think about going outside to paint. Instead I painted these lemons which are starting to
dry out giving slightly different values and colors.

Fabulous reflections!

I like the halos of color in the air around the slices. And the brown tinting on the drying skins captures the age of the slices so well.

Thanks for the lovely comments. I'm really trying for more, know what I mean. It's such a lovely challenging jouney

Sorry I bought this painting already. I love this artist and her work. Back home in Europe I have another 14 paintings done by Sammons-Hong. Each time visitors come into my house they are amazed.....

Dear Dr. Tan,
I am so thrilled to know you'll be hanging another one of my paintings in your gorgeous home or office. I feel honored to have my art displayed and appreciated in your fine art collection. Thank you!
