wonderful warm colours and feel

this would look as good on canvas as if painted in oils

Another masterpiece. Boringly exemplary. Go get something wrong, will yer?!
Best Regards, Larry.

All the gear & no idea.

It's as if the screen doesn't exist and the light comes from another source. first rate, as always.
Best wishes,

You may not be old (?),

You may not be Dutch (?),

But you most certainly are a Master of your art!

Thank you.

The more I look, the more there is to see!

Hey comon, it's just some apples, but who could give them more justice than you?

I'm jealous

"From the country kitchen"

Wonderfull, evocative image.

Inspiration is rarer than a plate glass camera.....

Gary, you manage to give a Rembrandt feel to your works of this kind. BRAVO!

This time you've stooped so low as bypass even limbo dancer territory! As soon as I saw the image I knew I'd seen it before. After few hours spent musing in my favourite armchair over a cup of cocoa with a pre-mashed Hobnob, I get bits under the pallet of my false teeth otherwise, it came to me and 5 minutes on the web confirmed my suspicions: what you have uploaded is not your own work, but a frame captured from a video of the Waitrose 'Sourced from local growers' advertising campaign

I can only assume that the pressure you feel under to provide your loyal and many fans with a never-ending supply of sumptuous virtual feasts to satisfy the retinal and neuronal cravings of their visual perception apparatus is the cause of what I sincerely hope will prove to be a once in a lifetime, artistic gaffe of monumental proportions

Must end now as I'm off to Tesco to replace my 1963 Decca B&W TV with one of these new-fangled, flat-screen colour contraptions as if you spend over 100.00 you get a free eye test: for which I'm long overdue

Best wishes,

Gary Hickin
