Re: Latest still lifes

Hi Maria! Great to see your recent work.

Both of these are wonderfully done. I really like the texture you have in both of these paintings. The cherries have such a wonderfully realistic ring of reflected light on them - and that's a lot of cherries. Great job!

Your hydrangeas and limes painting is so beautiful - all the soothing blue and lavender shades, with the pretty bright greens from the limes. The shaping and composition is just great.

Love them both!

Re: Latest still lifes

It's so funny, Maria - somehow when I first looked at these, the second painting of the apricots didn't load and I didn't notice. oops My comments were only for the first and last paintings.

All three are loading now for me. I must take a moment to say the shadows on the apricot painting are really beautiful - I like that you put in some reflective color in the shadows. Looks great.
