A tiny seed

A little, tiny sketch (the photo of it here is pretty much life size) - just the seed of an idea....

Looks like a promising seed. Do you remember the still lives of the master Giorgio Morandi? Maybe he can offer some fertilizer for your seed.

I'm not just a silly Sicilian....!
I have heard of Giorgio Morandi...!
He specialized in still life, now, he's Italian, of course. He died, (always remember when people die), mid 60's? In his mid 70's? Yes...!
The other thing l remember, his paintings were featured in, and mentioned, in, Federico Fellini's, 'La Dolce Vita'(1959)
That's all......!
Goodness what a memory...! :)

Hi Loriann, Morandi is one of my favourites. I love how pared down his paintings are and his limited palette. They are so deceptively simple.

What a memory Willie!!!
