still life in chalk

That's chalk/pastel look is beautiful. I like the way the images kind of fading away. Can I say it's like impressionist paintings. There're fruit, wine and flowers. It gives me a autumn harvest feeling. :)

Has a gaslight ambiance to it.

Feels old world post impressionist era - pre-lightbulb times.

Nice one, Bob.

:D :D :D

YEEEESSSSSS! A very nice painting and style (kind of mix among original impressionism, divisionism and CÚzanne initial development).
I would only add perhaps some darker colours here and there to make some fruit and holes a bit more concrete, but it would be perfect as well this way (it's only a matter of personal preferences).
You're once again among the pioneering masters, Bob.

Nice pastel-like appearance. However possibly I would try to play a bit with contrast, shadow/light to better define focus point. Nice work in general.
