August 27 - Canned Corn
"What, Me Warhol?" Moving means emptying out the kitchen, and what is more common than a can of corn? Everybody has a couple of these on the kitchen shelf, and this one didn't get packed today. So it was a late dinner. I enjoyed painting it before digging in, because of the turn of the can from light into shadow meant that I worked through the warms to the cool palette as it slipped into shadow. Ellipses are also a bit fun to do, as the roundness of the can needs to fall back in space. Since I've moved my antique parlor mirror over to the other studio, my "silent critic" is truly silent! Original oil, 7 x 5 inches. $100 available from the dailypaintings.com website for this day.
