This still life features pears, plums, bananas, and tangelos. One of the most important features in this painting is the reflected light. The banana has an orange reflection from the tangelo. The bottom of the tangelo has a reflection from the plate. Each fruit has a highlight on it’s right side and the shadow side is on the left. There are complementary colors (red and green) and different shapes and sizes which add interest.
The owner of this painting hung this in her formal dining room, and the color of the paint in her room was chosen to fit this picture.
