My artistic training has concentrated on making colors sing. The blues against the oranges, the warm centers of the flowers making the few petals jump, and the subtle shifts in the qualities of the whites allow for sophisticated color theory. This opulent breakfast set up showcases color, brushstroke, and harmony. It makes the viewer want to be in the picture, to touch the objects, and to be a part of a lovely moment. It is meant to raise the spirits and gladden the heart.
