Thanks Ann,

You do raise an interesting point. In the golden age of Dutch still life painting, everything was drawn in proportion to other things in the picture, and also drawn to the exact size of the thing being painted. Max Beckmann, one of the greatest still life painters of the 20th century (along with Paula Modersohn Becker, Pierre Bonnard, and Chaim Soutine) was seriously playful in sizing things, bending everything to picture design and, moreover, to his myth-making vision. He is a big influence!

Glad you like this one.

Rick

Casey,

I missed your comment. Thanks. I felt I needed the color and some form on the swing of white cloth. The threat was cluttering the motif. Glad you like the apples.

Rick
