Wow Pat this is gorgeous, the richness of the colours, the wonderful reflections in the kettle which gives it such body.

Another giant leap forward! Really great still life. I particularly like your reflective surfaces and how you have the dark grapes moving away from us into the scene. And the copper is great. Wonderful color and values. :D:D:D:D:D
