This is the sixth painting in my Lucky Red series. There are more symbols of power and good fortune in this set up. The still life arrangement plays off the many shades of whites and reds with a little green for eye relief. I love the way it glows.
Both of these white elephants are relatively new acquisitions. The alabaster elephant on the left has a creamy glow and its upraised trunk portends attracting good fortune. The white elephant on the right has a lowered trunk which symbolizes leaving good fortune. Elephants also symbolize strength and power (not a surprise) in addition to honor and stability. These all seem good qualities to me.
Again I have placed a pomegranate in the painting. This symbolizes fertility as do the apples in addition to knowledge. The martini glass is just for fun. Of course.
The pearls in the necklace also connote many positive meanings: sincerity, purity, good luck, wealth, integrity among others. Plus, they were fun to paint.
I can’t vouch for the veracity of the good fortune that any of these items will bring, but I love to create still lifes that are a little beyond just pretty pictures. This series of Lucky Red still lifes features good luck symbols and the color red at least somewhere in each painting.
This painting was a fun challenge to paint with so many shades of white and red, reflections and shadows.
