This piece is a still life painting of two lemon wedges resting quietly on a cream cloth. The colors consist of a gorgeous palette of yellows, ranging from sharp to pastel. There are clear, geometric and rounded brushstrokes to give the painting a really great punch. The lemon wedges cast a dramatic and interesting shadow on the tablecloth.

Getting to Know Malia

Malia Pettit sees her artistic process as an act of “liberating the paint” and “allowing for the unexpected to occur.” Her portraits of women stem from a fascination with glossy magazines and their portrayal of models, actors and celebrities. Her work has been especially influenced by Chantal Joffe and John Singer Sargent. She currently lives in California after having lived in England for ten years. When she’s not painting, she is a full-time mom and enjoys exploring estate sales, antique stores and used bookstores.
