Tangerine and Tea Bowl

4"x6" oil on masonite panel This painting could have just as likely been entitled "Tangerine vs. Tea Bowl." The bookies would probably place odds on the larger, overpowering tea bowl, with its striking design, beating the heck out the poor little tangerine. Seems obvious, right? Actually, that spunky little tangerine's color was so brilliant that I had to tone it down lest it kicked the poor tea bowl's behind. Not just a little, no, it was so brilliant that it was spanking the tea bowl and laughing as it did it! It shouldn't have been laughing, because only one of the them was edible and man, do I love tangerines. Justice prevailed! It was delicious.
