Flavors of the South

12" x 9" oil on stretched canvas - painted en plein air, alla prima - $108 including shipping -
While mixing the paints for this one, I was musing about the delicious colors of this early morning scene. The sunlight hitting the second story porch was a wonderful orange sherbet or
peach iced tea. The deep red shadow side was raspberry jam or perhaps plum butter. The darkest shadows were licorice and the new grass was limeade. Mint julep anyone??

Thanks, Ron. I guess you could tell that I had just a slice of toast for breakfast before heading out to paint this morning. Everything looked like food. Thanks always for your comments. :o)
