Your purples are wonderful.

What is the 'Auction for mobile'? I clicked on it and didn't get it.

But can taste those lovely cherries!

This is gorgeous.

The light!!! Amazing painting, so luscious.

luscious!

"Under the magnifying glass".
The reflection into the third cherry from the left is extraordinary!It seems the painter is in action.We can even see the vertical stalks in a triangle!It reminds me of a similar staging in this Rembrandt's painting,but the crucial difference is that here the latter would be a mirror image into a small fruit!

succulent and velvet-silk texture

The leaf on the right is a perfect touch; its serrated leaves contrast with the smooth texture of the cherries that are 'lit' so well.

Love it! Beautifully composed, a great pattern of light and dark. Beautifully painted as well.
