I have a commission to paint 4 little pieces for somebody. She selected 3 existing images but for the 4th she wanted citrus fruits and glass. I love the way the glass makes the colors bounce around- the lemon is doused in green and orange, the lime's shadow gets a hint of red, and the orange is touched with green. Because her carpet is "iris" and in order to unify the colors, I started with a purple blue background on all 4 paintings.
