I have 2 very cool old typewriters. This is my portable Underwood that actually works. Hundertwasser is one of my favorite artists...my favorite pen and old silver teapot I found at Portobello Market. Oh yes, one of my old and worn out quilts and Buffalo China platters with oranges included. I love my old "stuff".

Unintentionally I seem to be working with a full palette these days, with a wide spectrum of colors. In the beginning of this painting, I had painted a patterned blue fabric underneath a group of whole lemons. With the planned flowers in the upper canvas, this just did not read well. So I broke the front right space up with cut lemon slices and placed them in an arranged scatter, which works better as a composition.

I have been working with clear glass and cobalt glass over the last month or so. I was trying to abstract the design of the red bow. I love the way looking through clear glass distorts objects. The bottle is not painted with precise lines, but then, I wanted it to have it's own personality....like it is breathing.
