Grapes on the Loose

Putting these guys on auction this weekend, Saturday 6/29.  Green grapes painted very loose to focus on the lights, darks and colors in between.  Shadows were fun and still loving my angular plates.  Funny, I'm finally comfortable dealing with circles and ovals and now I've fallen love with squares and rectangles.  

I also thought you might also enjoy seeing the setup for a change.  A few things I want to point out because I have a really cool privilege known as Artistic License.  I think that means I can do whatever I want, whenever I want and just whip out my AL get-out-of-jail-free card if I get caught!  I'll have to go order some of those.  I wonder how long they last????

The lone grape on the front corner just needed to be there to balance things out and make you ask, "where's that one going, what's so important that he has to leave the group now?!"  Also, it goes without saying, that rectangles are just a tad more interesting than squares. . .  

PSSSST - be sure and check out the upcoming late-night Sunday (6/30) post !  My artist-family has cooked up an interesting surprise!
