"The Finished Painting...My Table Garden"
I love the shadows of the leaves on the pots in this painting and the folds of the fabric at the bottom. My "table garden" is no more...I have dissected it, ate the fruit, am going to plant the potted plants and throw out the now spent zinnias. When you entertain guests, why not set up your own still life arrangement as if you intend to do a painting, and use it as a buffet centerpiece? Wouldn't something like this be pretty on a table with dishes of food placed around, instead of the food dishes simply placed on a flat cloth! Let's get creative!
