Pomegranate Bliss, 8x10 Oil on Canvas

Everyone knows that both pomegranates and wine are good for your heart -- in fact, they are so loaded with antioxidants, they are called "a miracle drug for aging". I see a lot of cheer in the darkness and richness of shadows, this velvety darkness adds a mystery to the painting. The brightly lit sides contribute to the"singing colour" and create a simple, yet subtle beauty with an internal glow . The three seeds of the pomegranate contrast beautifully with the white of a tablecloth. They look delicious even from up here. The canvas was specially primed and sanded to an eggshell smooth surface, thus a superior handling of the paint. There are quite a few glazes that helped me achieve this glow, and it took about 8 hours to complete this painting.
