Red grapes on the kitchen table





Still drying on my easel and getting a photo without shine was a problem, but here they are... red grapes on my kitchen table.  Not the most original title, can you think of a better one?
If I get up early I can catch the morning sun as it shines through my window onto my kitchen table.  This little pool of light often inspires me to paint, especially glowing almost transparent fruit.  'Glowing grapes' could be another title....no perhaps not !

Oil on board 30 x 40 cms

Lovely painting Cathy, the light is wonderful.
I'm useless at titles so can't help, sorry

This is a gorgeous painting and I can't believe how you got individual grapes to glow from the inside out!!

Absolutely beautiful! They glow. It reminds me of Vermeer.

I thought of a few names, but the one I like is "The Radiance of Grapes".

Thank you for the kind comments, I used a lot of glazing on this one to get the light right!

Thank you Mary, I think I might use your suggestion.

What a sumptuous painting - I could look at it for hours. The light is wonderful. Good luck choosing a title, though I do like the simple 'grapes on the table' kind of thing, especially in view of the contrast with the complexity of the painting itself.
