Circle of Life
A painting as a metaphor. It's been done before... many, many times. But this one is different and it's up to you to figure out what the apples have to do with the pottery and why one apple is cut open. Mmmmm it's a mystery, but fairly obvious once you figure it out. Here I have chosen to use cool shades of violet and teal in the tablecloth to accent the warm fall colors of the apple and the vase. I love the reflections of red and green in the blade of the knife. This lieelt still-life was a challenge but really a lot of fun when I reached the end and started adding highlights.
