Orange Slices and Glass

Today's painting for you:

"Orange Slices and Glass", Oil on Canvas, 30x24 inches, 2008

I often have the sneaking feeling that I'm not supposed to like my older paintings - especially those that I made close to the beginning of my career.  That's because I've presumably improved somewhat in the intervening years.  While it's true there are some paintings from that time that I just would not show today, there are many - this one included - that I still like tremendously.

Of course there are things I'd do differently today - I think it's impossible to work steadily for years and not have your entire approach evolve - but nevertheless I enjoyed looking at this one.  I hope you did too!
