Ready and Waiting, 4x4, Oil


SOLD
I got this beautiful aqua glass from my son last Christmas - it's so beautiful I'm afraid to use it. I like the way the limes react to the strong light I put on them, too. It looked like they were waiting for a splash of.... San Pelligrino? Hendricks Gin & Tonic? Limeade? Flat Water? Pin It

  1. Really good job on this one, Kelley. Like the way you handled the glass and your colors, especially that little bit of red undercoating showing through.

  5. Hey Kelley! Very refreshing. That green you used for the lime centers really pops. I love it!

  6. Carol, that red underpainting is an idea that Charles Sovek put forth in his workshop, and Carol Marine reinforced last Fall. Thank, Sally and Manon, and Katie - the inside of the limes were the hardest part of the painting. My mind KNEW they were green but my eyes saw pink and yellow and blue! Elaine - the gin & tonic would be my choice, too ;)

  10. Hi Kelley,
    I have to come forward and tell you I've been reading your blog for awhile. I love how your work has grown and this piece is particularly great - which is why I had to tell you!
    I am back to working at 1266 Furnace Brook but on the 2nd floor so occaisionally I see Tim.
    Any chance you are selling this one? It would be great in a kitchen or bar!
    Take care

  11. Kelley, this is awesome! The glass is so beautiful, I love how you captured the aqua tint .. and the limes, so JUICY! (Isn't it funny all the different colors you SEE in something you KNOW is a certain other color?)

    Great job ... definitely one of your best!

  12. Thanks so much Maura and Denise! Mary & Nancy - do you think I should do a 'citrus in a glass' series?

  13. Hey Kelley: It looks like you polished the glass before you painted it! Nice work.

  17. One of my favorite color combinations is aqua and lime green! Nice job on this one, good choice of glass for the limes.

  18. It looks like my comment didn't post, for some reason, so I'll say again: I love this, and I'm especially in love with the edges on the top rim of the glass.

  19. This is one of my favorites! I love the strength of the color on the limes with that touch of red underpainting, and the glass is perfect. You make it look easy!

  24. Wow, Kelley!

    This is so much nicer than the previous "Two Lemon Slices" painting IMHO.

    Super detailed and very realistic looking, especially for a work of art so small!
