Limes on Credit
(*I'm serious, if you have one or more and would like to send them off to me, email me and I will send you back my mailing address, it will only cost you a stamp and you will have allowed me to re-use them rather than you dropping them in the recycle bin or the land-fill... )
Limes on Credit is a another version of a previous painting of limes on my signature 'tin foil'.
See, 'Silver Limes' from my February 1, 2010 posting, that one was done with a brush and maybe a tiny bit of palette knife.
At the retreat/workshop I attended last week I created a few paintings using only a credit card and will post some of them in the future. The card (like a palette knife) allows me to be more spontaneous with the paint, apply it with thick rich strokes in a more painterly fashion, almost an abstraction of the subject matter. You 'll see more of this in the future.
