Here is a small oil painting of flowers and quinces on my table that was inspired by my love of Cezanne. I wonder how many people over the years have been inspired by the "father of us all", as Picasso called him. I did this painting in about an hour, and am not sure whether it is finished. Does the unpainted canvas bother you?

I agree with Chandran. But more--your blogs are charming and inspiring too. I love the book cover, and the pointy ears in the barn. And share your reverence for Cezanne's work.

Peace & cheer,
Margot

No, the uncluttered/underpainted background is pleasing.
Neat blog.

Hi Cathy

It is a pleasure to read your blog and even more to see your work.
I LOVE your childrens book illustrations! My children really appreciate the lovely portrait you did of me, and they do not like the one I painted of myself... so alatogether there is no accounting for tastes because I really love my own self portrait... so must leave it all to Count Orloff of Verdi's masked ball "chac'un au son gout"
I like the open canvs in your stil life, but I think a bit of warm colour in the fruit would give stronger life to the image (again - just my opinion)
Keep well
love
