Grapes on a table

Grapes on a table     oil on canvas  12"x10"

Last year, a good friend of mine got married and asked me if I could paint a still life for her as a wedding present which of course I accepted. Almost a year since the wedding and quite embarrassingly I still hadn't done her painting. As I was seeing her today, I decided on an impulse to paint it yesterday night - better late than ever! I suppose it might not be the usual occupation for a 28 years old on a Friday night but I had a great time painting it! (and the grapes were delicious too so no food wasted here!)
