Still life of flowers and fruits

This week's 'Insight into our world' is a painting that we bought when we lived in Bristol, RI. It's a beautiful piece and I love it for it's simplicity and use of imagery that draws the eye towards the centre of the painting. I love the glorious-ness of the blooms, the ripeness of the peaches, the shadows...and on and on. I was quite surprised when I liked this piece, since my taste goes more towards the slightly offbeat. I like to have a little twist to a regular or traditional art piece to make it more interesting. The painting is actually brighter than in the picture and where it hangs in our dining room, it gets lots of light to bring out its colors.
