What a bright beautiful day in Mississauga today!!  I had a great weekend. On Saturday I did a seminar with Shelley Prior. We did these grapes in a crystal bowl. Now I have to tell you I make all kinds of mistakes when I do a seminar...this morning I sat and played with them and they are looking better.  Shelley is a wonderful teacher as she encourages you and doesn't make you feel like a drip.  I love taking classes from her and her watercolours are so beautiful....www.shelleyprior.homestead.com  Thank you Shelley for a great class and thanks Liz for hosting it in your studio. I must say it sure made me miss teaching and having a teaching studio....

Val! This is beautiful.. I can feel the light coming through the crystal bowl, and your grapes look translucent. Just lovely, Mary Ann

Great painting VAL, you should be very proud of this! As stated the crystal bowl is well done and the grapes seem heavey upon it! Love their rich colors too! You need to buy just the right frame and hang this baby! Sanna

Val - you did this painting really well! It is stunning - so 3-dimensional. I know it could not have been easy to paint that crystal bowl, but you did a stunning job of it!
