Ridiculous, I know, but had to do a play on the fork part by emphasizing the tines! You can talk about stabbing things for only so long, you know.
This was particularly fun because the lavender background with the yellow lemon and lighting caused the fork to reflect blue. I also like how the shadow of the tines is more noticeable than the last one. Marvelous looking at it now, but gave me a lot of trouble during the process. Happy ending.
A fellow artist stopped by today so I brought out the two forks - the comment was - gee the blog doesn't really show how great these are -- she's right, the web defuses and flattens photos (no matter what). So I encourage a visit to the Daily Paintworks link for a better view and zoom feature. Still, she says, the painting is even better than that! Hmmmm . . . I rather like that the buyers will be pleasantly surprised!
Enjoy - life is joy we make one moment at a time,
