Shopping Cart Tango by Larry Lerew

Really wanted to paint this for days. Had to run errands and attend a few meetings but kept thinking about what I wanted to paint. I compose paintings in my head all the time. When I got to actually paint I tinted my ground, in this case canvas, with gold paint for a change. I did a couple of quick gel pen sketches in my sketchbook and dove in. I didn't want everything lined up like ducks in a row so I kept thinking "Variation" in size, shapes, color and direction. This kind of painting is very spontaneous but there is a lot of thinking going on before anything begins. It's really fun to see your interpretation appear on canvas. I am taking this painting to Brath & Hughes Fine Art, LLC - Gallery today and if accepted you can see it "LIVE" during their February featured group exhibit "Food & Fruit".
