Who Needs Lunch?

Raspberries anyone? I like this piece. It has presence. Pairs again. Les deux. To create a dynamic pull, Winslow Homer balanced a large element with a smaller one in his paintings. The diagonal between them, the space as well, heightens the impact and draws us in. How an artist entices us to enter the frame and moves us around the piece is as important as what is being painted. It is key to its energy. Its rhythm. Kandinsky's point to line to plane. So a raspberry can beckon. A lavender shadow can flow. A boat of creme and berries can uplift and call to the truffle where a raspberry beckons all over again. It is a perpetual call and response between the truffle, the eclair, the observer and observed.
