Ready to Eat

Another orange painting on gallery wrapped stretch canvas. Ready to eat and ready to hang. Here in this painting I’m exploring the use of the palette knife to create texture. I love texture! Years ago when attending CSUS, there was an exhibit of a former student who became quite successful. I think his name was Jian Wang. His paintings were very sculptural, painted straight from the tube. The oils were literal sitting 1 inch on the canvas. Simple subjects of pots and pans. But I loved the textural quality of it, very three dimensional. I can literally see the pot coming out of the canvas.

  1. These are exquisite Marlene. Your use of color values makes the top orange so sensuous, especially that little dollop of cream on the top right side. Your texture brings to mind Bonnard’s still lives.

    1. Thank you, Hannah! I checked out Pierre Bonnard’s paintings and I just love his use of colors. They’re beautiful!
