Painting #9 "No matter how you slice it...

Some days you have so much pending, you almost forget what you were planning to do when you went to the studio. That was my day. Before I knew it, a couple of hours had gone by and I was running short on studio time to get my daily painting done.

I decided to grab a quick bite for lunch, first. The leftover cherry turnover made perfect desert. But wait, it was too hot to eat and the cherries oozing out the seam just screamed "paint me!". I was already to start when I just needed to change the angle.........too late! Gotta eat it. Yummy! Okay, on to plan B...

I had some leftover fruit that needed to be used or thrown out, so I sliced the orange and then the apple ........but that was a little boring, so I had decided to slice the apple sideways.....wa-la a set up!

The title seemed obvious...........


" No matter how you slice it, it is still apples to oranges..."

lol, by the time I made it out to the studio today it was noon....and I hadn't eaten anything.....I was so hungry I looked over at my still life options and I had two pears....I was torn between the yellow and the green one, but since I had a green apple, I ate the green pear....yellow pear is saved for another day..........

So funny, you really know how to work the left-over fruit!

Very nice "Warm" mood for this painting. I like the casual placement of your "leftovers!" and am amazed that on an abstract level, the mood you created takes me to a sunny beach. Like very much!
