Bisque With Oranges and Mint

Click here to bid!


Another shadow box painting. I haven't had very many views of this on my daily painting site. Wondering if it might have something to do with the fact that the pitcher is bisque. (A pottery that hasn't been glazed and fired again, so it's dull, almost powdery looking.) Maybe viewers expect highlights, so it doesn't look right to them. Or maybe it's just too ordinary or boring looking overall. I'll never know, but I like it.

The spearmint was picked from my deck. Love, love, love fresh spearmint. Put it in my water everyday and just keep filling up the waterbottle over and over until I've had a gallon of it. A sprig of mint lasts through all of that. Cinnamon sticks are another great thing to add. Even fresh ginger. It makes drinking all that water everyday actually enjoyable. Cheers!

  1. What a beautiful still life. I happen to like the contrast of the bisque next to the sheen of the oranges, You have a great eye.
