Agree .. this is a stretch for you .. still into Kelley coloring ?
I think that book was a good stretch for me .. and of course Scott's prodding to slow down and add a little detail here and there. .. did pass my mind when I went tworked on The Passing.

Back to you .. this is awesome!

I agree Mark!!! This is a real beauty. Even your signature is great. The wood of the table and the lighting look so real.

Thanks Cath!

Thanks Wayne, actually I was going more for a Leffel or Kreutz kind of thing, I always wanted to try this kind of painting. I don't if it's a style I will work in or not...

Sanne, thank you!

Thanks Shawn!

Jerry, that's an interesting thought. I have looked more than a couple of times at Gavin's latest self portrait but don't know how I feel about it. (other than it's a good work)

LOL!!
Thanks Susan! It's actually a shrub and I've done a little looking but can't find out what it's called. It goes from the neighbor's yard through the fence into ours, but it's obviously been there quite a while. ?

Mark, it looks like maybe a quince to me...ask the neighbor. Maybe "Quince with iron pot" or "Quince Jelly" but "Pink tree..." just doesn't do it justice.

Thought of Leffel immediately.

LOL! Maybe "Spring's Blush" The house next door is a rental(third person in 3 years!)

I don't know what a Quince is (that seems sad somehow) but this shrub puts forth some large purple-black berries in the fall (the birds like to eat them and then paint abstract paintings on the sidewalk)
I just need to find the time to puruse the library plant book section.... Oh and it's a japanese bowl, dull black ceramic.

Thanks Susan!!!

Mark
