"Reflections With Oranges", oil painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Reflections with Oranges", oil painting from life, 16 x 20"

This painting presented an interesting challenge for me. I had the items on the floor and I was looking down on it -which made for an interesting composition that was kind of tricky to get the perspective correct on. I wasn't sure about the background colour, so I decided to wipe it off, and behold, what remained was exactly what I was looking for. Who knew?

By the way, Poppy Riot has also now sold, so I think I will continue the clearance sale into February. It is nice to get some wall space back, but I really miss my babies.

Sharon, this is glorious! I love the unique composition and the warm coral and yellow colored flowers just sing against the turquoise background. Really lovely!
