Golden Plums

I'm currently exploring a more Renaissance-style of painting and for this work chose a bright metallic gold background for a grouping of four beautiful blue-black plums. I've chosen to use an ornate black frame to contrast sharply with the shiny magnificence of the glowing gold and complement the darkness of the fruit; it's a combination that works very well and implies a richness and grandeur that is often missing from modern-day life. This work measures 13.39" × 11.02" × 1.18".

Golden Plums

Apples - so simple, yet profoundly significant, culturally symbolic of so much - from the Garden of Eden to Snow White.
