a challenge...

Plate of Vegetables
6.5" x 10" Watercolor on paper
So, I decided to get back to painting today, after a couple of weeks of not being able to pick up a paintbrush... Karin Jurick's challenge in Different Strokes... seemed to be a good way to get restarted. So, above is my version and contribution to her blog... I hope you like it! Theresa

Theresa, this is a lovely piece and the light reminds us of the life-giving quality of the fruits of the earth.

Please accept my sympathy upon the loss of your father. When my dad died at age 82, I was so very sad to lose him though it was expected. I am sure your dad would be very proud of you as you pick up your daily activities, especially your lovely painting. You are in my thoughts.

PS, I passed along the Passion for Painting award to you -- I admire your dedication to art. You can read about it on my website entry for Sunday, June 14.

Theresa, you made a beautiful job here, with your purple shades, your mauve background, nice veggies' colors.
Receive my deeper sympathy for tour father's departure, and it is good for you to have a skill to overcome your pain.

PS.Maybe could I have written in French.

Ho osservato con attenzione i tuoi lavori, mi piacciono in particolare alcuni fiori ma tratti con grande abilità e intensità anche gli altri soggetti. Usi i colori con determinazione, direi che a volte sembri fare concorrenza agli oggetti reali.
E' stato un piacere conoscerti, complimenti e buona continuazione.
