Still Life with White Grapes


Last night's thunderstorms have given way to sunshine and warm temperatures. I painted this study yesterday. Today, it is time for perfecting the art of puttering around in the garden. Mowing. Weeding. Watering. Life is sweet.

I hope your Sunday is a relaxing one!

Love these grapes. So simple and yet tells a story of quiet and summer - a moment. Sounds like a good day in the garden too. Great one Darla

You've really captured the grapes perfectly Darla - they look very juicy and translucent.
