Country Scene still life

22x15 watercolor on 140 lb Saunders cold press paper of these country kitchen items. I first painted this scene as a class demo and love the blue and white spongeware pitchers and bowls holding grapes, lemons and zinnias from the garden. It was done wet in wet. My plan is to take the demo piece and cut it into strips vertically and this one cut horizontally then weave together as one painting.

Oh this is so lovely. How can you dare cut it? Yikes!

You know I am a big fan of yours - and paintings like these are the reason why!
It's something about your wonderful colour combinations. I love those hot, vibrant flower heads against the cool turquoise background :0)
