Yellow and Blue

Yellow and Blue
12 x 16 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

 Bought some fresh flowers to paint a still life this week. While arranging them,  I had the flowers on my placemat( from Limone on Lake Garda, Italy)  which gave me the idea of the lemons so decided to go for this yellow and blue theme. The small cup was something hand made in Tuscany from one of my past trips.  It has a lemon on it too. And the background was a beautiful napkin I bought while in France. Had to simplify the design a great deal to avoid competing with the flowers, but liked the color combinations. It's fun to use props that I have gathered from my travels and bring back good memories.
