Segments on Purple

There's something I love about purple tablecloths or drapes in still life paintings. I think it's a great color for setting of other things around it. Here it really makes the oranges and lemons on the table pop! Both complimenting and resonating.

I'm also very fond of the handling of the red drape on the side and that top of a chair (shown as a white dome/curve). The chair is intentionally painted here as a very abstract form, but the shape and color placement does everything needed to make that part of the painting work!

Included a couple of details below since they give the usual combinations of showing detailed color and brush work, as well as my distinctive flecks of under painting.
