|Lite Lunch, 10x10" acrylic on canvas (sold)|
Don’t tell my brother, but I painted Lite Lunch thinking I’d give it to him as a house warming present… and somehow it never made it to his house. I guess I owe him a painting!!
I knew I wanted a reflection, so I set up the apple and Coke on my granite kitchen counter. I didn’t start out painting the shadow in the background. Sometimes it’s just a happy accident when an interesting shadow accidently falls across the canvas after I’ve finished the painting. If I think it adds something I paint the shadow in for more interest.
