"Queue of Grapes" --- Sold

Click Here to Bid

This one is very similar to my "Green and Purple" painting. But I was playing with the composition this time, and trying to create a viewing path with grapes. Grapes are wonderful balance adjusters in a still life painting. They are humble, shying away from being the center, but their subtle beauty always shines. They like to help each other to create a harmonious group effect, instead of being conquerors and overpowering the neighbors.

I never thought about grapes that way, but you're exactly right. Thanks so much for the insight.

Please keep writing about your painting, you have generated many interesting discussions in our house. You get me to think in ways that go beyond the visual.
