Silver pot with bowl of fruit

Silver pot with bowl of fruit  12x16  Oil on cavas panel

I originally did this painting in 1994 and I didn't like it much then and I liked it even less in the last few days! :-)   Sooooo, I did a "do-over" and am liking it more now.  I'm not completely satisfied - yet - but . . . .

I'm pretty sure that I'm not done with this one. 


  1. I admire people like you who can do that, revisit something previously considered done, I just can't do that, who knows why... it's a nice composition, and I like the fact that the bowl of fruits is not included completely in the painting...
    I'll go check your other posts (you really have started the year working hard!:)
    Best regards,

  2. I couldn't stand the original! My choices were 1) burn it or 2) do it over. I liked the composition but the rest was B-A-D and P-I-T-I-F-U-L.

    As for working "hard", I didn't have much else to do because we were snow bound! Melissa almost pushed me out into my studio because I was driving her crazy in the house. You probably understand her reasons. "I was only trying to help" didn't help my cause at all! :-)

    Warmest best wishes
