Most of you know what I’m going to say… LOVE those pops of orange. Lawdy! That beautiful orange next to that rich gorgeous blue… oooowie! Makes for a nice piece! The palette is nice, the composition is serene and happy… kind of like you’re on the back of one of those boats with an iced tea in your hand soaking up the sun after a long winter… ok, maybe I have a wild imagination, but it’s a feel good painting for sure!

It’s not always easy to paint everyday subjects so that they’re interesting… THIS is interesting to me… perhaps its my fondness for jars, especially with cool lids… (you can use them for SO many things!). Again, that pop of a bright color wakes this painting up leaving the rest of it nice and serene. Very nice.

Here’s a short blip about Christine from her website:

Christine Lafuente is a widely exhibited Painter and Pratt Institute Instructor. She received a Bachelors of Art in English from Bryn Mawr College (1991), a Certificate in Painting from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia (1995) and a Masters of Fine Arts in Painting from Brooklyn College (2004).
