"Tea with Grapes"

6 x 5.75"
oil on gessoed museum board

I seem to never tire of the wonderful discoveries in nature and the objects around me. I always find something new. As light and shadow patterns move, the objects they touch change color right before my eyes. I love watching these changes and catching them in paint. 

Here I was most fascinated with how the light gave from to the grapes, where they became dark and where they became much lighter. They turned orange, purple, rose, and almost black and gave rich shadow colors to the dish.
