Another great painting Petra. How long does each one take to paint?

Thank you Pat, Lesley, Teresa, Michael, Larry, Carole, Kevin and Peter for your very kind comments. /Peter- it takes about a week, I can only paint in the evening as I work full time

Absolutely stunning, Petra! Not surprised you're enjoying this. I would if I came up with such high quality work each time!

Super Still life,reflections are lovely but the texture you have achieved on the pomegranates is truly amazing, I haven't posted any paintings for a while as I have a disc in my back pressing on a nerve so I can't sit or stand for long, I have three paintings on the go but when they get finished is anyones guess as some days I can't paint at all, but you are always an Inspiration Petra with your superb work.

Many thanks Seok and William for your encouraging comments, much appreciated.// William I hope you get better very soon as we are all looking forward to seeing your paintings

Nearly missed this! Wow everyone has already said what I was thinking! - well done!

Beautiful Petra - You have truly found your niche and you nail it !!!

Thank you Debs and Sara for your very kind comments, much appreciated

A truly stunning still life Petra. You certainly are a master at this - well done indeed!

I thought I'd chase you up following your encouraging comments about my own work and I was stunned by the quality of yours. The still lifes, especially, seem to have an atelier-type of approach that I admire immensely. I only chose to put my comment on this picture but it would be invidious to choose just one. Work of the highest quality - and much appreciated, judging by the comments! Really well done!

Many thanks Michael for your very kind and encouraging comment, very much appreciated
