A New Beginning!!

Boy!! Am I glad to close the door on 2011. My wish for myself and everyone is that 2012 is the best yet,and we achieve everything we set out to do and enjoy ourselves in the process.Along the way I want to extend a hand to those less fortunate,sometimes all is needed is a kind word,some encouragement,if my finances allow I will also try to help in that way too.Sometimes the chasm between the haves and the have nots is too wide.If I have good fortune I know I would want to share it.Success would taste that much sweeter for it.

I begin this year with Cezanne's Ginger Jar and Fruit.Its not an exact copy,I've left  out some of the detail in the background but overall its one of my favourites and I always meant to have a go painting it.

  3. I absolutely love it, Azra. I have long been a fan of the early impressionists and admire some of their work. This still life is wonderful. Glad you added your own twist to it to make it more your own. The colors are beautiful. Very nice work. I loved what you had to say here, also. You have a beautiful spirit and are a very nice person whom I am glad to have 'met'. Happy painting in the new year.
