I'm always amazed at your work, Jeanne. This one particularly knocks me out: so simple and yet there is a abundance of interesting effects to stay interested. I love the glass reflections, that juicy color, and your rendering of that beautiful spoon. What a lovely painting!

Oh thank you so much, Diana! This was painted way back when I was in your group and we had a theme to use apples, glass and spoon. It was a challenge to combine those subjects but then I grasped the theme of Morning Glories and a humorous twist with Aunt Bea. Tks!
