Yellow Boats for Vincent, by Kim Blair

Yellow Boats for Vincent
(10"x10" oil on canvas)

Yellow Boats for Vincent, is an oil painting of lemon wedges arranged as a still life set-up on tin foil.  The foil reflects the variety of rich yellow tones found in the skin and flesh of these wedges and the abstract reflections create dynamic energy in the painting.

I did not realize, until after painting this piece, that Van Gogh had inspired me once again! Take a look at his painting, 'Fishing Boats on the Beach at Saintes-Maries'... I think you will agree with me that Vincent's influence crept into this little lemon wedge painting.
