Three Little Quinces, Oil, 6x6

Three Little Quinces, 6x8
$100 + $10 S&H via Paypal

These are 3 of the 4 quince that one of my quince bushes produced. I don't know if anyone does anything but make jelly with this fruit, but I don't have enough this year to put up. I was, once again, looking for a monumental feel to a small item, seen from eye level. I pile up about 6 boxes to get them to this height, and set the lamp right at the edge of the set up. Working on my sky series today, I took a slightly too-bright and sweet sunset, and dulled it down to the point where it is boring and gray. Tomorrow - CPR for that painting!


  1. You've been busy, girl! SO many great new paintings on here. The greens and pale yellows, pale turquoises and touches of orange in this next to that dark background are so beautiful! Love the jelly donuts and the party mushrooms too...very creative!

  2. hi kelley!
    oh my gosh! this painting is delicious! i love the colors you chose. it is really dramatic and makes the fruit pop right off of the canvas!

  3. You are on a great roll. These Quince are great and yesterday's jelly donuts were outstanding. Jeanne
