Hide and Seek 10"x10" $165.00 SOLD

Really tried to have less defined edges in this one so that the lime that is behind the gass jar is super simplified.  The sharpest edge in the whole painting    is on the lime  in the middle of the canvas.  Hopefully this is the edge that draws your first glance.  Then the shadow and round bottom edge of the jar pulls you into the circular patterns formed by the light and shadows.  This is what artists call "transportation"--leading your eye around the painting.  The background edge of the gold cloth is the least defined edge because it needs to stay back and give the painting some depth.
