The boldness of the flowers and the underplayed veggies make this one really pop! Great texture contrasts between knife and brush. You sure do "play" good, Diane! Jim

bottom half works for me .. the top is too undecided.

all are pleased.

Reclining carrots.. look relaxed
I love the onion! Painted with flair!
Looks like you've been having big fun, Diane. :)

Looks like you had a great time with a p. knife. I like the texture and dynamic brush strokes very much.
Veggies look interesting as they are.

I love it! The only part of the painting that doesn't work for me is the carrots. They don't seem to fit the style and execution of the rest of the painting. They almost look too soft....or wiped out. I think the way you handled the onion is perfect, I would like to see that same treatment on the carrots.
You have a beautiful color scheme, and I can read the flowers and everything else just find.

Thank you for looking and commenting.....this is an oxymoron of style...for sure...I was really interested in your reaction..somedays are like that...no plan....playing with the dark dark to light..this is actually what the inside of my brain looks like...lol......

Cousin- I like the way the onion just sits there while the pansy's are frantic with emotion! Very emotional painting- fabulous play of dark and light.

My delusion and my lack of skill in Photoshop

Top works for me :D
Happenstanced on the carrots and the onions so I suppose I would like to see top and bottom connected ..... but who am I to critique .....

Really fun play with the paint. I do like it but I think you've crossed the line too far into abstraction - I think I prefer these more realized.

Closer to Laura Robb, which is very very nice!

I don't see a horse.
I see a really cool painting! I love the energy of the flowers. I love the lanquishing of the tired carrots (I prolly have carrots like that in the fridge right now.... frightening place, the fridge). I love, love, love ze onion. You've taken three things that normally wouldn't do a still life together, and created a nicely orchestrated piece out of them. But what makes this entire painting rock and roll for me is the pallet and the abstraction. It's warm and kinetic. It's passionate. You've taken a STILL life and made it MOVE, and that's a very exciting thing. Do you plan to do more along these lines? I'd love to see them.
