pottery and fruit

Did you get chill bumps when you read that title? I am open to suggestions.
The stacked bowls were not suposed to make an appearance in this painting. It was going to be the tomatoes and the mug. They kept looking at me from over on my shelf and I felt sorry for them. I do think they compliment the mug. I think I need to put them out of my vision so that I can move on.
This is painted on an 11 x 14" linen canvas. SOLD

  1. Great job on the clear bowl. Your shadows and light are beautifully captured. I always like the way you handle the background, your subject has depth and looks solid. Very nice!

  2. I can never get enough of your stacked bowls...esp. that turquoise one. They add a really nice balance to this composition.

  3. They're baaaack, and I am glad that they are...I just know that this is a Carol Charmichael painting when it pops up on my blog roll...great job!

  4. I rather love the pottery bowls! And they do go beautifully with the mug. Now you have me trying to come up with a recipe that calls for both tomatoes and apples!

  5. NO! I love those stacked bowls. I love this painting! ...the color, the light, the mood and that stack of bowls.
