A Painter's Lunch

(image currently unavailable)
A Painter's Lunch - Oil on panel - 12"x9"
Still life with Coffee mug, Apple and Banana.

With this piece I decided on a grouping of objects and also to play with the balance of the composition.
The two main negative shapes really interest me as they appear to mimic each other along with the way the banana and the spoon, pointing in opposite directions, seem to balance each other out.
There are beautiful subtle reflections and changes in texture among the hugging objects which still somehow retain there individual essence and appear to simultaneously occupy their own space.

Hope you like it.
