Those peaches are like the three graces on a china plate. I had just been reading a phrase from Hazlitt which Eli Siegel quotes in his "Theory of Opposites"in the Aesthetic Realism journal,and I think this painting really exemplifying Heaviness adn Lightness. This is a really astounding example of the weight of th peach, the dark, soft fuzz, and the hard, bright lightness of that china dish. Thank you I really said Wow! when I saw it.

P.S. I need to get that book!

"three peaches on a plate" is simply divine!

I received this delectable trio at 3:33pm this afternoon. :)

I said 'wow' too. A lesson in how to paint peaches... and nice to see that gold rim plate again. Well done!

I love them! Merci, encore une fois, Julian.
