"Painting from nature is not copying the object, it is realizing one's sensations." -Paul Cezanne
I have Cezanne to thank for permission to attempt an expression of color, line and shape with nothing but my paints, paper and brushes.
I set up this still life and painted it at home in anticipation of a trip to France. When we got there, I realized that the light is completely different there. I thought it would be, but, still, I was amazed!
