'Still Life' art isn't something that I know very much about but I'm enjoying the colorful example of it that you've presented us with here!
It's a 'Good Show',my friend!

Very nice still life and I enjoy the loose impressionistic style. It kind of looks like two separate paintings, fruit below and flowers above. It's a little confusing to the eye. Also, I feel there is too much negative space on the right while there is none on the left. The white under the fruit is also a little distracting (don't know what that is). Overall a very nice effort with lots of great color, interest, and movement.

    Thank you for reviewing and your comments which I appreciate. The canvas was a recycled one and I roughed it up with stuck on then peeled off newspaper this prodiced a very rustic foundation which I only lightly coloured and allowed some white to show through before doing the actual items. The roses were set offcentre so that the rustic background would act as a wall. It was all experimental and I really enjoyed doing it.

    That explains it. A very successful effort. Hope to see more like this
Comment from Ray Gordon

Brenda so nice to see you opening up and trying new techniques. You are shedding rigidity for fluidity and it shows in this piece. I would call it tending to expressionism. Now you started your journey be bold, enjoy and look back only to see where you have been. I like this piece. Ray

    Thank yiu. Glad you kiked it. It was experimental with an abandoned canvas I found lying near our bins. Lol... i stuck on paper, then scraped it off then gessoed it making a really rough surface. I enjoyed slapping the oils on and just kept going....

I am no critic of art and usually refrain from making a fool of myself, but this style appeals to me. I also like the mixture of fruits and flowers. Best of luck in the contest.

    Thank you. For me appeal is the first fact to enjoy whether painting or photo. I really appreciated your comment and that you liked it.
Comment from liseworks

There is a lot to see here, very busy though, love the fruit but I think the flowers are taking away from the fruit. Great details in all the fruit and the flowers though,

I like the impressionistic style you used here, Brenda, showing the still life of fruit and flowers. I like how you positioned them in the frame. The colours you used are sympathetic towards each other, very subtle. Very pleasing composition. Suzanne

Comment from TDtraditionalart

Nice piece here! I like the thick application of your paint. It adds great texture in your flowers and fruit. The composition is nicely balanced and the use of colour is appropriate. Well done, thanks for sharing. All the best in the contest

Comment from Regina E.H-Ariel

A beautiful combination of flowers and fruits - great idea with a perfect frame choice and super composition with a wonderful color combination and application -the first impression is attractive making us curious to look closer as your content is unusual
excellent detail work so every piece is looking like a special one - fantastic harmony, perfect contrast and light application
a very nice presentation, unusual and interesting
