this painting by William Harnett was chosen by Rhonda Myers
This challenge deviated a little from our other challenges, in that a painting by William Harnett was chosen to interpret. It is our first still-life. What a wonderful idea! Take the theme of a favorite artist and paint your own view. What amazed me the most, is how we chose to use this painting for our own view.
I was the first entry. I used this paintng with the objects as a source, and changed the colors a bit. As you can see, I added a "sprite" (fairie) hovering over the grapes. My sprite is grabbing the red grape (also a change from the original), as it's color and glow attract her the most. I have taken many a scene that I have photographed and painted it with my sprite creations. (See my web site www.PaintingsbyLinda.net and click on Mystical). I used very bold color.

Rhonda Myers, did a wonderful painting. Her colors are soft and delicate. Rhonda added these lovely flowers in the bowl that gave this still -life a whole different feel than what I did. We will have to hear from Rhonda what her intentions were when she painted this beautiful painting.
