# 223: Pomegranate and Blue

6" x 6" oil on canvas

I was out of commission for a few days with a nasty sinus infection and then proceeded to have a couple of bad painting days  (the evidence of, I choose not to share at this time) and then had a camera breakdown. Those are my excuses of not posting for almost a week.

I have been attempting to paint pomegranates and I am mystified as to why they have been causing so much anguish. They end up looking like bright red alien eggs. Anyways this one turned out OK....still a little alien, but OK.  Perhaps the triadic color harmony helped.


  1. This is very satisfying on many levels.
    The fruit and cup really jump out at you, and the care taken on the reflections gives a nice stopover on the trip through the art.
    Primary triad adds to the boldness and makes me want to hold them in my hands.
    I think the alien-ness is a big part of their appeal.

  2. Ditto on the above.
