new small painting: Limes

New painting! It’s another small one!

I had so much fun painting my last small painting (15 x 15 cm, 6″ x 6″) that I couldn’t wait to start the next one. When we were living in California, we had a lime tree in a large pot in our backyard. I enjoyed sitting in a chair in the summer and just looking at these stunning fruits in wonder. They have such bright colours and the leaves are sooo green!

Well, this was painted from a photo I took of that particular lime tree and I chose the background to be a bright blue like the colour of the windows on the Californian house we lived in.

It’s been varnished with a glossy finish, so it’s a bit shiny. And it’s available in my shop! http://www.etsy.com/shop/RosannaBurford
