"X" Marks the Spot - 8 x 10
Day 13 (just seems like 48)
Welcome to my dark side. Face it, we all have one. This piece is in strong contrast to my lighter side which is demonstrated in "Three Amigos" (2/6/2012). This is my attempt at nearly monochromatic. When this still life was set up I just kept being attracted to the spot where the light on the pear and the ribbon connected. I know about tangents and trying to avoid them but I don't really care. Sometimes I just want to do what is wrong just because someone told me I shouldn't. So, what is my favorite part of this painting - the place where the "X" is formed - oh well, sometimes being wrong just feels right.
