"Lime Up"

5" x 7"
oil on Gessobord

I am constantly amazed by the endless variation and colors of fruit. It is no wonder that many of earth's creatures are attracted by the vivid colors of nature. What a palette! Limes have such rich green hues and I find them great fun and challenging to paint! In this still life painting, a lime finds its way to a regal position atop an egg cup.
