Green Grapes, Silver Bowl, Orange Reflections

I was about to post this painting yesterday when I decided I needed to work on it some more.  There was a strong horizontal hard edge where the background met the tabletop.  It was focusing attention where it didn't belong.  So I went back in & smudged the hard edge and now the background recedes and the subject matter is more important.  I don't always make the right choices the first time through and even a small painting can benefit from a second look.
