You do "gloss" so well. The gloss on the ceramic, the leaves, the clementine, all perfect.
I hope you don't mind the rain as these are terrific paintings!
Beyond gorgeous, as always. You are a visual acrobat. Never cease to amaze.
Dear Julian, it's a mystery how this half hidden,glowing little jewel compelled me to have yet another look at "Old woman frying eggs" by Velazquez. One of my favourite paintings. Although not a still life and painted centuries ago by a Spaniard influenced by Caravaggio, I feel a similar emotional response looking at "Clementine and cup".Very 17th century! Never mind that the clementine didn't exist at that time. Anna.
