Acrylic on gessoed panel
8" x 10"

Eager to try my hand at still life, I began by assembling a couple ofmy favorite objects: my incredibly sharp Cuisinart paring knife,and a beautiful fresh lime. These are part of my lunch ritual— aslice of pumpernickel bread topped with chive cream cheese, a thinslab of smoked salmon and a generous splash of lime. Limitedpalette, silhouetted shapes, and a nice diagonal arrangement. Tasty!
