hi jean, I'm a little late for dinner :) ... this does have the feeling of an old master (like Chardin) but modernized because of the handling of the surface and I think also the novel use of lighting, it seems to be coming from over the viewer's shoulder ...

Pete, there is still some in the pot but beware Roberts socks are in there :D, lighting throws me and I just think oh a little lite here or a little lite there and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't :)

Well Jean, you have to watch out for Robert and food. Some years back when food was in the conversations here in ArtRage forums, and he was going on about Japanese steamers and so on, he mentioned a soup (?) recipe and suggested putting in heaps of cayenne pepper. :p I asked if it was to remove varnish or eat. I know realize it was to hide the flavor of his socks. It's all so easy to prepare when you know the secret ingredient. . . I think I'll stick to your soup ingredients here. :rolleyes:

A classical beauty in still life genre! You made a further jump towards perfection. I love this painting.

"At its very best, the genre of still life becomes an existential vision of the artist’s internal world. Composition, light effect, color and tone are coalesced via artistic vision to transcend narrative and become visual poetry".

There have been many great still life painters before and since the french master Chardin: Caravaggio, Velasquez, Fantin la Tour, Cotan and Francisco de Zubarán, for example.

But your most distingueshed painting, definitely reminds the spanish caravaggio: Zurbaran.
Amazing Justjean

The thanks must only go to you. If I had a small part in getting you to such a wonderful point in your development, I can only bow to whatever gods are inside you that allow you to express yourself in such a magnificent manner.
I majorly credit this community, those who created it and those who have sustained it, for being the driving force that allow us the space to express ourselves.
