Cobalt Blue and Orange By Barbara Jones

Cobalt Blue and Orange By Barbara Jones


Original Oil on Linen Canvas

11×14 Unframed

A painting is much like theater. In this still life I placed a large cobalt blue glass storage jar deep in the dark background of this painting. A small blue willow Chinese jar is placed in the foreground. Small orange halo mandarin oranges are placed to the side as supporting actors. The focus of light was the challenge for me in the painting and it strikes a path to the main character. Please follow the light and find the main character.

Barbara JonesThe Creative Process Is A Passion

The beauty of the ordinary is what I try to capture in my paintings. We are surrounded by unlimited opportunities to share with others the unique qualities of color, light and form that are part of our everyday lives.

Too often we overlook the simple beauty of God’s creations or pass them by. Whether it’s the quiet glow of a sunlit morning, the softness of a cloudy afternoon or the interplay of colors and form in a still life arrangement–I try to capture in my paintings the unique light and atmosphere of my subjects.

I work from life, and I want viewers to feel like they’re seeing what I’m seeing–on that day, in that place, in that way.
