Behind the fruit bowl

What are those two lemons doing behind the fruit bowl?..... Hummm..... I wonder..... perhaps they are simply surprised to see their own reflection. What tremendous joy this painting has given me while I was painting it. I guess this is why I love painting. I felt like a kid again.

This is my oil painting for the week. Simple.....but I love it! As a prop, I used a bottle of Bollinger champagne. That is what is inside the wrapping paper. This bottle of French champagne was given to me recently by my friend Pam, who is a wonderful actress. Cheers to Pam and all of you.

The Gift

I would like to dedicate this painting to my very best friend Marie-Anne. She had her birthday on Friday. We have been friends for 35 years, so I have filled this box with all of my friendship to her, all the things we have done together. Come to think of it, I should have used a bigger box.

What is the story here? I suspect this cup is begging to be filled with something you like drinking. Perhaps a herbal tea? I enjoyed this week painting very much. I never thought painting a plain cup, a saucer and a spoon could be so "pleasuresome!".
