                                  6" x 12" - Oil on Panel

Really don't know what to say about this one!  Last fall my husband had an insatiable appetite for grapes.  (I prefer mine in liquid form).  We had green grapes, red grapes, purple grapes - you get the picture.  What better time to set up a still life and do a companion piece for the oranges featured  in  the October post.  It was  lovely the way the sunlight seemed to make these little orbs glow enhancing   their natural translucence...oops - sunlight moves quickly - so  artificial light - not the same effect - take photos  - totally lost the translucence.  Capturing the reflections on the silver tray  became a challenge as well.  Sometime I shall try painting grapes again - but not for a while!
