# 225: Shy Mandarin

6" x 6" oil on canvas
Oh how I struggled with this! My still lives have been very simple lately because I am focusing on color harmonies. Another triad, but this time of the secondary colors. It is an unusual palette for me. Even though I couldn't seem land this painting, I do enjoy the triad effect.


  1. Love it. I love the way you seem to handle the struggle. I am struggling with several paintings lately and I wish I could let it slide but it irks me to put it mildly. I remember something I read once about Virginia Wolfe. She was lying on a divan with her arm draped over her eyes and she said, "I shall never write again." I think my struggles are more like that. Give us a little insight.
