Citrus fruits and their shiny green leaves are some of Erin’s favorite subjects. It is not uncommon to see her sitting at the dining table, a sheet draped over a box or stack of books and two or three fresh lemons from the garden. The interplay of light and shadow on these simple shapes engages her attention, as her brush daubs bright and muted colors on the canvas.
Last week, Erin had just primed four 8″ x 10″ birch panel supports and was setting up to paint. Instead of using the table to set her subject she draped ou old upright piano with an off-white sheet, and spread a line of lemons and tangerines along with their branches and leaves along the length of the 88 keys.
This unique 4 panel oil painting was the result.
