    The Dutch did everything the best! I can't think of an art period that was more inspirational than seventeenth century Holland.

    It's great! The first thing I saw was the cloth, it's a beautiful color and you captured it just perfectly. I also love the reflection on the bottom of the fruit.

    You did a great job on the cloth. I bet you could achieve a lot more than you think!

    I have a simple but maybe silly question: Do you create larger paintings? When thinking about what I would like on my walls, I admit I myself would want something big. Imagining your work on that scale is very exciting! Can you elaborate on the size issue? (uh oh, I can just hear it now…bigger/better jokes!)

    Perfect fruit to be presented so beautifully ;0)

    Thank you all!

    Sally: I have not painted larger-format works in a while, but that is not to say I never will in the future.

    Love the fabric, Jeff!! This is one of my major bugaboos too — very intimidating subject — I think you've done a superb job on it.

    This is gorgeous! The satin sheen of the table cloth is amazingly beautiful!
    Love your paintings!
