With the last stroke of the brush on these peaches/nectarines, I pictured Elizabeth Bennet, when towards the end of this wonderful book, she was sitting in Mr. Darcy’s house, being entertained by his sister, and in agony lest he should come in and find her there…by this time she is well aware that she is in love with him…..

The next variation which their visit afforded was produced by the entrance of the servants with a collation of cold meat, cake, and a variety of all the finest fruits in season; but this did not take place till after many a significant look and smile from Mrs. Annesley to Miss Darcy had been given, to remind her of her post.
There was now employment for the whole party..for though they could not all talk, they could all eat; and the beautiful pyramids of grapes, nectarines, and peaches soon collected them round the table. “Pride and Prejudice.

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

    Absolutely one of my favorite collections of your work. All the fruit has a real 3D feel.

  • Thank you Jim…I spend a lot of time trying to avoid painting realistically but in my main collections of work like this one, it creeps in and truth to say they are my favourites as well….
    P.S.I bought a new kind of paint this week…can’t wait to try it…
