The Ruffled Edges

The Ruffled Edges-sl

The Ruffled Edges, oil on canvas, 10″x12″.

I was in the mood to paint a still life as I haven’t done one in a while.  That’s about it.    There’s nothing really more to this story except that I ate an unusually large amount of black licorice while painting this piece.   I discovered Australian black licorice when I went to the grocery store to get the roses for the painting and it has been one sided love affair ever since.  But that is likely of little importance or interest to anyone but me.

  1. Janet, I really like the use of the strong reds in this painting. It’s very striking with the softer golds.

  2. I guess you mean the soft, black licorice, right? Yes, delicious (I’m from Australia originally). This painting is delicious, too.

  3. This is probably my favorite floral painting you have done. Probably because I LOVE roses and I adore books. I can’t wait until you put this art print in your shop so I can purchase it and hang it in my home.

  4. Oh I am interested! I love liqorice! And waching your paintings – like this one – makes me happy – and inspired! It is “Simpel”, yet strong!
