A Painting and Dog

I think no one should set up a still life on a box with a tablecloth over it, because it creates confusion by messing with the fundamental flatness of a table surface. I like the philodendron leaves, especially the blue notes. In fact I like all the colors. I didn't do right by the little brown jug though, or that odd little blob of a lime, or that mysterious fruit setting behind mount tablecloth.

Raising the bar for beauty, I am including a picture of my dog. This is the best picture I've taken of him.
