Blue and Yellow Make Green

"Blue and Yellow Make Green"
8 x 8 Oil Painting by Pat Fiorello

I usually like to have flowers be the central focus of my still life paintings, but for this one I started with a lemon and looked to add some other simple shapes and colors. I also found a lime and then selected the blue glass vase which I've had  on my "still life prop shelf" for awhile, but never painted before.

Without the flowers these other objects can look pretty static, so I dragged my brush out in places to add some energy and unity to the painting.
