# 59: Excuse Me

6" x 8" oil on canvas

Sometimes I think that my color choices are a little irresponsible. I didn't think of the color wheel at all when I put this together, but you know sometimes a after fussing with this and that a color combination strikes me as being "paintable" and I go with that. What is missing here is value contrast, still I really enjoyed painting the blue glass with all of its bumps.


  1. I like how the yellow pepper seems to come forward purely on account of its warmth. At least that's how it seems to me. And the vase is really striking!

  2. i feel like sometimes it's a relief to make irresponsible choices. and maybe that's why i really love the colors in this painting! bright, bold and eye-catching.
