One of those serendipitous finds during a search for something else. Forget whatever allegory the artist had in mind:—just try to feel between your fingers the rough texture of the crystallized sugar on the fruits and comfits in the bowl! And, of course, the taste—add anise?

Hi Katherine, this is such an amazing painting. I can easily gaze at it for any length of time. The artist is blessed with enormous skill and brilliance. The sugar crystals and the filled glass is astonishing to view. I'm glad you found it. Thanks for posting it. Hope you and yours are well. I'm fine here. -- Pat

Thanks, Pat! Glad you share my "sweet tooth" for this picture. I almost saved it for next Valentine's Day because of the scrumptious looking heart-shaped pastry, but it was just too good to hold back. After a hard year or everybody, let's hope can all concentrate on things that make us smile. Your perceptive comments always make me do just that. Cheers.
