Floating Lemon Stripes

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!
