Today’s post was a quick painting.  I had this great, little, stretched canvas.  I haven’t painted this glass jar for quite a while, and decided the time had come to revisit an old friend.  It was wonderful to just play with lighting, color, and composition on a small scale.

I have always loved painting citrus fruits.  I saw these in the store the other day, and was immediatley drawn to the beautiful leaves.  They have a great waxy green color to them. 

For this painting, I really have tried to paint stroke by stroke. If left to it, I really do love getting in the surface of the painting, and moving things around.  Although if I do that, I find that I’m not nearly as happy with it, and it looses some of the freshness that it may have had before.
