Lovely job on the tonal balance and shading from darks to your artful highlight on this piece. I know what you mean about being frustrated trying to get a photo to show your actual painting--can be very difficult. I have enjoyed browsing and seeing your work. Glad to have found your delightful blog (via your comment on Marie Theron's).
Joan it is a delicious looking painting for the eye (palette) as well as the palate...great artwork!Thank you for your warm welcome back. This touched my heart and soul :)
Hi Joan!... "Apple"... it is... to Me... despite your claim otherwise!Love the rich colour and the successful way that you have modulated it to create form and its believably shiny surface!All that I can say..is Yum!Yum!Good Painting!Warmest regards, Bruce
