Strong, vibrant, sensational!

The magical sky behind, worthy of the italian Quattrocento. Normal, of course, after the venetian journey. Delicious reverie...

It has the feel of a winter light coming in.

So much energy and that beautiful clementine is just waiting to be peeled. So simply stated in a wonderful composition.

Another beauty. As a new subscriber I am very impressed with the simple elegance of your subjects and the quality of these little jewels. I love to paint them myself but never try to market them. Today I am working on a small (8 x 10) large red bruised apple, green seedless grapes and tah dah chestnuts!

Beautiful use of strong complements!
