Key Limes

I love ikat weave fabrics, so I have a little collection. I've been wanting to put this great cloth from Guatemala into a painting for a long time, so I was thrilled when I saw how great the limes looked on it. I love limes too! These are headed for lime marmalade.

I'm glad to see your new postings...excellent! You've captured the shine on those limes so beautifully and I love the use of blue with the greens and yellows.

I love how the limes just pop off of that fabric! yes their shine is fantastic.

Your work is superb!

Thanks to you all, Beverly, Karen, Sarah, and Anderson, for your encouraging comments! This is one of those paintings that looked like it wasn't going to work at all, until it did! The marmalade was work intensive, they are really small for squeezing. And unfortunately after model duty, a little dry too. But I threw in some mandarins from another painting (coming soon) and that helped a lot.

I like it, and your personal stile!
Remember to me Felice Casorati an italian artist.

Bye bye from Turin

Ciao Anna,
Thanks for your comment, and thanks for directing me to the artist Felice Cantorati! I looked his work up online and it is truly wonderful. It's a pity that I can't get a book on this artist for less than $400!! I feel very flattered that you make this comparison.

Love this painting! Nice and rich colors.

Thanks to Usha and the Prof,
I looked up Felice Casorati, I liked what I found. Thanks for directing me there.

This was the first painting to sell in my current solo show, it's one of my favorites too.
