"Extraordinarily Ordinary"

Click Here for Purchase Information
I think the job of a still life artist is to discover the beauty from the everyday stuff and share it to the world. I think I did my job today. When the light bounces back and forth on that bowl with blue patterns and then transmitted through the cantaloupe slide, I saw the combining effect is extraordinarily beautiful. The tranquil blue turns into a vibrant orange glow. Wow, I am speechless. Now I want share what I saw with you.

What vibrant colors. The melon and grapes look good enough to pluck from the painting and eat.

The oranges in the melon just pop!

Of all the still lifes you've posted recently, I think I like this one the best.

I find cantaloupe slices wonderful to paint juxtaposed against the blue. You did a great job of the colors and of course the brush work.

It is the contrast of blue and orange make it become extraordinary !

因为蓝和橙色的颜色对比,使这幅画很抢眼!

Wow, what a beauty. I can't say anything I haven't said before, but I just wanted to chime in. This reminds me of what painting is about. :)

What a beautiful painting to get to look at on my very wintery spring day. The sun wasn't shinning - but I enjoyed this! :)

Your brushstrokes seem so simple and effortless and I am sure it is not so easy but you make it look easy. Excellent!

Stunning!!! The canteloupe looks electric, as if someone had wired it with a ligtbulb. The blue pattern on the blowl is equally electric. Very impressive!
