Perhaps never before have these particular items been collected together in a still life.

This is cute! I love the collection of unrelated items that are all yellow. Really great! :)

it looks great!

Thanks Kathleen, D, Genine, Laserone, and Tracy! I had fun trying to come up with a still life for my everyday articles. I wish I could push that bottle more upright! It's a little off kilter. Oh well. Oh, that reminds me, I better eat those bananas! Thanks for commenting!

good job! i love the color yellow and you pull it off wonderfully!

Joan Yoshioka said...

Thanks Ronell and Chelsie! Maybe I'll consider pulling together still life objects that are red next time. Truthfully tho', most of my cool stuff I've collected are a boring brown!

It's gorgeous! I love the colours and the composition and of course the painting itself is just brilliant ... such simple objects and you've created beauty out of them :) Am off to fave it on flickr!

I love the rich color, and the splattered background and the way you handled the reflections and shadows... the whole painting is simply gorgeous. And I really enjoyed seeing the sketch that you worked from. I always learn something when I visit your blog. Your "thinking" award is well deserved. Congratulations.

M - Thanks, I'm threatening to do a similar red or maybe a purple oriented still life. Do I have red or purple things? Hmmm. Thanks again for the award. :)
Juj - Thanks to the support from you and everyone else, I get really enthused about practicing! Thanks!
