Lite Lunch

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.
