The Painting Blog

Started as a daily painting blog but this is easier to live with-
the once-in-a-while blog of a painter who also writes.

April 7 Bowl of Mangos

This little silver bowl with a lid was a wedding present, almost 37 years ago. I usually keep a (small)sport card collection and tubes of watercolor in it. Odd assortment, I know, but it landed on the window sill in my studio and that's what it has in it, usually. I pressed it into fondue duty on Saturday so it was washed and ready to hold two lovely ripe mangos and model for the daily painting tonight. I set them on a piece of hardboard as I did with the vase of pussy willows a couple of days ago. I like the backgroundless effect so went with it again for today's painting.
