Description: This Autumn Harvest, like so many Baroque style still-lifes, is an allegory. Old age is harvest time. While it may bring warts, wrinkles and knobiness, it also brings wisdom. Since what we often perceive as Reality may not be as real as it seems when we live “on autopilot;” years and experience harvest an awareness that we’re watching a stage. Notice the partially open exit door in the dim light of the back wall. Besides, Brussel Sprout stalks are great fun and a fore-shortening challenge to paint.
