Quince II, 12x12, Oil

Isn't technology something?  I killed my camera yesterday and was bereft because I didn't want to interrupt blogging, and I don't want to just choose any old camera - I live by my camera, so it's got to be just right!  Well, here's a photo taken with my husband's iPhone - sent to me via email, cropped in Photoshop.... and... voila!  Funny thing... to me I'm in heaven looking at this painting because I got to use my favorite "Horizon Blue" by Holbein for the Van-Gogh inspired flat background.  My husband likes the painting EXCEPT for the background color!  
This one won't be available till early June, either....  submissions, submissions!

Once again, thank you all for your comments - they matter!

  4. This one just jumped out at me. I love the colors, background included. I also love that the blue through the glass is warmer. Reminds me of Caribbean waters... How can anyone hate that???
