Thank you Shadow for the compliment.. However, I would hate to see anyone afflicted such as I am.. LOL.. I have painted and erased a highlight on the right side of the apple for some three hours now, and still can't get it to suit me.. But it will come to me, It will come.. Thanks again

It's iper-realistic and still very tasteful (in any sense). I hope You will share Your "tricks", patience apart.
Superlative capability Rick!

Hey idea. IF you ever glicee your work or sell it. Put one of your painting in the sun and see if a bird tries to eat it. I'm serious. I forgot the guys name but somebody painted things so realistic that the birds tried to eat the fake grapes.

Right Ubuntu!
The espisode is narrated to have occurred in Athens at a painting context.
That painter though was not the eventual winner.
Who won was because the realistic fruit painter the following day tried in vain to discover what his competitor painting looked like raising himself the drape on it. It was only a perfectly painted one!
So, whilst the former (Parrasio) deceived the birds, the actual winner (Zeusi) deceived a great painter (Parrasio himself)!
The names are in Italian, but should be similar enough in English.
