A stunning piece Marjorie, colours are lovely but I know what these camera's are like.

Beautifully done, Marjorie its a super painting.

Another winner Marjorie.

Whenever I make a comment on your work Marjorie, it always starts with stunning....and this is no different. There is a beautiful softness and subtly to your still life work.

Thanks Alan, I'm so glad you like it. Thanks Willie - I'm waiting to see that S.L. Of yours. Maureen and Sylvia - big thanks. Fiona, thankyou very much!

I suspect the colours are even richer than the photograph suggests. Lovely work.

Wow Marjorie this is just beautiful your choice of colours really compliment each other 😀

Thanks Gudrun, there is yellow on the sunlit bits which hasn't registered and pink near the darker areas. This is one of the few I'm quite happy with. Thanks Linda - it's a palette I love and hydrangeas have such beautiful colours in them.

It's beautiful, Marjorie, in spite of the camera difficulties. I can imagine how it must look and I bet it's stunning. It is already, even if it is presented without the finishing colours. Lovely. Brian

Beautiful light and colours in this, Marjorie. A great work!

Lovely just the same even if the camera hasn't picked up all the colours. I find the same thing when photographing mine.

Thankyou Brian, Mia and Sandra. I must confess, I use the i pad to photograph.

Just lovely, Marjorie.

Thanks Jennifer - are you doing more with SAA now? I never seem to see any of your work on here now.

Think you need a good nickname Marjorie how about Metal Magic Marjorie sounds good. I think that if the light had been dropped a little behind the hydrangea that would have given more depth and dynamics. Also I bit of a crop from the left side seems to unify the subjects more. But as mentioned the photo is not doing the painting justice so a difficult one.

Another wonderful still life, Marjorie.

MMM it shall be John. Afraid I can't crop it, it's already on canvas. The darks are darker in reality. Thankyou too Cesare.

Another beauty Marjorie

A photo of a painting is often a poor relation to the actual work. But this is beautiful, so the real thing must be something special. Marvelous work, Marjorie.

Another stunner Marjorie

Dennis, Dennis ( I like doing that ) and Lewis, many thanks - taking a quick photo is frustrating ( I'm too impatient to use a camera and transfer ) .

a good setup and rendition

Beautiful work Marjorie :)

Superb Marjorie.

Thankyou very much, Russell, Derek, Louise and George.

Beautiful !!
