OK, I am just really excited for you, Don. This new series is so rich, and the possibilities are endless! What alot of fun! The purples and reds in this stillife are sumptuous! It's gorgeously painted!

I love this one. The purple jelly and the purple lenses create a really arresting image.

These just really seem to go together. It's well painted, but on top of that, the mysterious story grabs me.

I see that the violent undercurrent subsided for the time being. (delicate object next to something to smash it with). ha ha. I agree with Martha M., the purples and reds are sumptuous! Love this series.

Don Gray said...

Thanks Frank--good to hear your thoughts.

"Violent undercurrent!"...who, moi?! I'm meek as a lamb. Can't imagine how you got those connotations.

Thanks, Silvina.

I didn't get any violent message from this, but thought it was whimsical. It seems like the sunglasses are slipping down the nose of the jelly jar.

It's a fun image, and interesting.

Don Gray said...

Thanks for the kind comments, Diana.

Martha Miller said...

you COULD smash the glasses with the jelly jar...

Don Gray said...

You're right, Martha. It's a violent painting.
