  1. Hi. I notice in the painting that the table sags.. it is a well-used table and has known seasons bounty before. We are going out to pick blackberries today. When I get home I am going to create my own still life on our table. Thanks! Jane

  2. Hi,
    A nice painting, I was looking at the painting and basically looking at the fruit etc. and on a second look I saw the person standing in the corner. Isn’t it amazing what we can miss.

    1. I have to admit, Mags, that I did not see the person at all until I read your comment! It is amazing how our eyes can play tricks on us! I remember the time I spent the better part of a day with my husband before I noticed he had shaved his mustache off… 🙂

  3. Brilliant quote. J’adore Gauguin’s paintings. I recently read “The Moon and Sixpence” which is based on his life. Have you read it?
    Thanks Mags – I didn’t see the person in the corner.

    1. Thank you, Cait! It is a wonder how colors change in different lighting and when in the presence of other colors, and how some people are more sensitive to these variations than others.

    1. It’s true, Robin, the more I look at it the more I see, and it’s so interesting seeing what others have noticed, too… I’m now getting the feeling the person might be beckoning someone working outside to come in for a refreshing break…

Your thoughts are much appreciated...
