favorite painting

I loved eating these plums and I enjoyed painting them. This is my favorite painting - it is 8 x 10 inches on a linen covered board, paint applied with palette knife. It is the second in a series of plums on the blue tablecloth. The first painting (see archives) was done on a textured canvas. I may do more of these - I like the combination of alizarin crimson with touches of yellow on the warm light blue ground. Color theory works if you keep it simple - can you see the green and cadmium reds and violets as well?
