At dawn the eastern skies alight and the breeze through the open window gently lifts and dances with the curtain. Golden light reflects on the ceiling from golden threads passing through a beam of light. The scented sea breeze follows with memories too many to recall.

What a an amazing and wonderful artpiece! One of Your best in my view.
The vases, flowers and the shelf seem to be both real and painted on the elements. You switch from concreteness to tromp-l'oeil continuously in this unique interpretation of Yours!

To all of you, I wish you the best. With this piece I feel I stepped out of my comfort zone and It felt good. I felt free, unstructured. Thank you for your comments.

Did I tell you about my new Nomad Brush for the ipad , not used in this painting. It has great detail, gets your fingers out of your line of sight. The more you hold it to the end the more flowing, flashy you feel. Unlike the other stylus this is a small paint brush. It is great to do a sketch with the ipad and bring it into my Mac.

The wall was a rough stucco, medium grade with a gradient. I ofter use the stucco to reflect appreciation of European interiors. I dream about them. Everything is visually rich.

You cannot hold or own an idea. It must be shared or it never existed.

Perhaps you should step out of your comfort zone more often...this is a very nice still life PD
