Very very nice painting!. I enjoyed Ruth's blog very much also and her photos are wonderful! Thank you for sharing.l
I gasped with delight when this arrived today. I love getting up close to the screen and analyzing the brush strokes and then pulling back and marveling how they make the various textures..truly a wonder!
I loved the great background depth of velvety black...(and the pickins' of the day!) At first glance I saw a cork,instead of walnuts. It gave the piece a mischeivously playful air.
I have to tell you...this painting took my breath away. I forwarded this auction to several artists who are not subscribers and cannot stop myself from pulling it up and admiring it. To achieve the impact you do on such a diminuitive scale is at once admirable and inspiring. Thank you.
