"Blue Tangerines 2"

"Blue Tangerines 2"
10 x 8 in
Oil on Canvas Panel
I wanted to do another painting of these tangerines and blue cloth, the last one I did really pushed me to my limits and I wanted another try at it.  I'm glad I did so because I really enjoyed the process.  It was hard for me to just paint this while seeing my girlfriend put up all the christmas ornaments and clean the apartment, I felt bad not helping but she knows how much I am addicted to painting and when I have the itch all I can do is just paint.  I really do appreciate her patience and letting me dive into my passion, she's truly one of a king, to say I'm the luckiest guy in the world is an understatement.  I still wanted to keep the play within the tangerines and have the blue cloth be a little separated.  Painting these two different textures have been a challenge to say the least but also has been an eye opener on how to handle my craft and adjust it to each painting.  I hope you guys have enjoyed this one thanks for stopping by and viewing.

She sounds like a keeper.
You need to do something special for her.
I like the tangerine studies. Kind of a awkward tension in them that makes them interesting.
