# 183: Near and Far 2

6" x 6" oil on canvas

I attempted the same subject again because I was not satisfied with my previous attempt. Somethings are better and some not as good. Willa  third time time be a charm? It is such a  simple subject but, perhaps because of the simplicity, I am having a bugger of time with it.


  1. I prefer this one too! The stripes work better as a tablecloth, and the muted green background is easier on the eye. The apples are wonderful. I just love how you handle the shadows and highlights. Simple is usually harder. Remember the saying ... the simpler the assignment the tougher the solution? Zen, or somesuch profound insight.

  2. Gorgeous~ I love your painting style.
