Glass Bowl with Tangerine, 6 x 6, oil

(This piece is in a private collection in Pearland, Texas)

"There is no blue without yellow and without orange."
Vincent Van Gogh

My inspiration for "Glass Bowl with Tangerine" came from a modern-looking bowl I found, and I thought it deserved to be in a painting with a modern color scheme as well. 

The background became a beautiful purple-blue, complementing the vibrant orange of the tangerine in the foreground. Overall I am satisfied with both the brilliant colors and a contemporary look.
