I love the presentation, the real berries almost frame the work....and my favourite colour too...red... I find Autumn colours the best of all, magestic in a very humble way, none of the show of the summer flowers, they they are, providing food and nuture ...very graceful and at peace...

I have had plentiful berries in my garden this year too. I may just put some in a jam jar and have a go at painting them before the birds take them all! There is something very serene about your berry painting. I like the colour of the contrasting background against the full red and juicy looking berries.

perfection in a cup! Even better than going to the florist - get someone to go to the florist and buy flowers for you! t.xx

Hi Vanessa
Love this little painting, it seems as if I could reach out and pluck the berries off the screen they are so lifelike.
I was thinking about leaves the other day too, that they are so beautiful at this time of year. I've been pressing some to make a decoration but never thought to put them in a jar/pot like flowers? might try that!
