Oranges across a Table

It was my turn to set up the Tuesday night still life scene for our Zoom group. There is a lot of thought that goes into one of these. Is it something that the limited range of a computer camera and the Zoom application can handle? Will the other artists like the scene? Will it have the right amount of challenge? And so on.

I started with a bowl of oranges on a blue tablecloth but ended up tipping the bowl against the wall, rumpling the tablecloth, and spreading a few oranges across the table. I think it was a good setup because I had fun painting it and the other paintings were terrific.

    It is beautiful! There is an interesting measure of vibrancy and calm in this piece. It feels unusual and soothing and interesting. Like the perfect balance of a scent or taste. Nice job Sarah!

  2. I like this very much. The colors really show each other off and I think turning the bowl on its side was a genius idea because it transformed the still life into one that is dynamic! In motion! I love that.
