Waterglass and Lemon

Today's painting for you:

"Waterglass and Lemon", Oil on Panel, 6x5 inches, 2010

One of the as-yet unread books on my shelf is Newton's Opticks.  I bought it several years ago just so I could better understand visual effects like this - where glasses of water act like mirrors and prisms.  My list of books to read is awfully long, so I haven't gotten there yet, but I'm looking forward to having a go at it.  Art and science are only opposed to each other in unhealthy minds.

I hope you enjoy it!
