Jean, I really like this. Something about it reminds me of Cezanne -- does that make sense?
Thanks, AH. Maybe the flatness and angularity of most of the shapes and the brushstroke outlines? I googled Cezanne and it seems closer to some of his later still life work.
i'd say it's also in the palate choices. I like this method of allowing us to see a painting unfold. I also like the "for now" part.
