I'm so glad I found your blog! I enjoy coming to look at what you are doing... always inspiring!

Thank you so much, Windy! This is a favorite composition of mine as the abstract quality of the subjects, although realistically rendered, brings a fresher, more contemporary look to my work while still using classical elements. Thanks again for your great observations! Jeanne

I hadn't been to your blog for a bit.
I love this. The detail is amazing. I also love the oreos, the silver spoons and pretty much everything you do!Wow! you are so good at realism!

Thank you so much, Kay! Painting realism is much like what I've adopted as my motto on my website, "Trifles make perfection, but perfection itself is no trifle." Michaelangelo.
Thank you again, Jeanne
