Little Quince, 6x8, Oil

SOLD

Our first home had a huge quince shrub in the front yard, and it was the first time I'd ever been aware of the beautiful, delicate flowers, which have huge thorns and a bit of an oriental look to them.  When we moved to Rhode Island I wanted another quince bush, but couldn't decide on coral or white flowers, so we got both.  Every Spring now I brave the thorny branches to get cuttings of the flowers, which grow on the inside of the shrub, on the old wood.

  1. Nicely done, Kelley. We had one of those lovely bushes in the last house we lived in. Very beautiful.

  2. you really nailed the glass & water! and the flowers, too, but the glass is so much harder... the specs on the background are just light, right? The black background really makes the painting pop.

  3. Great job on the vase! I definitely need more practice on that. I also like the dark background. Really pulls the quince forward! Nice job - as always!

  11. Hi - are you using creating a textured gesso ground under under this before starting? I like the technique.
