Floating Lemon Stripes 6" x 6" oil on board
I was rereading my book on Sergei Bongart by Mary N.
Balcomb. He thought that still life was a great learning tool.
One of his students that contributed to the book said he
challenged her to paint lemons floating in a bowl
of water. It inspired me to give it a try. The
distortion of the stripes beneith the glass bowl
was complicated and it was a big
challenge to try to keep it simple-
but still fun!
