I am not afraid of their toxicity. I don't eat paint and I am not a finger painter. I like to keep my hands clean so I just doný worry about being poisoned.
I like the glass vase in this painting and the random nature of the grapes. Perhaps there is a bit too much red overall but I did achieve a sense of unity and there is a nice path that takes the eye through the piece.
