Still Life with Apples and Pitcher

Still Life with Apples and Pitcher:

by Camille Pissarro, who died on November 13, 1903, in Paris at the age of 73.

My wine glasses aren't even really wine glasses but are short and stemless and all-purpose:

They suit my needs for my nearly-daily wine with dinner. And, for those of you who might remember my trips down the grocery store wine aisles, the wine in the glass is my current favorite: Sterling Vintner's Collection Cabernet Sauvignon.

Please join the weekly blogger gathering and share a drink with us at T Stands for Tuesday.


  1. I'm loving your post this T Day! The painting is wonderful, it is so delicate and intricately painted 😁. But it's your rendition that caught my eye, with the colourful fruit in the wooden bowl, pretty ceramic basket full of autumn cheer, the lovely autumn leaf mat and the beautiful wooden table and wall colour in the background - I love it! Your wine glass choice is perfect too 😁. Wishing you a Happy T Tuesday! J 😊

    Your still life looks very pretty. The wooden bowl is more my style. But I do like Pissaro's painting too. How do you always manage to find people on their birthdays or death days? Anyhow, it's a perfect connect for T day. Hope yours is a good one.

    1. I follow a few art blogs, and when I see a work with a drink in it I look to see when the artist died and schedule the post for then. Closer to time, I write up the post and add any extra things to go with the painting. I'm glad you liked it :)

  3. Good morning I loved your post and I enjoy how you connect the dates-very clever
    Happy T Day Kathy

  4. what a lovely still life display of the painting -very well coordinated. Yes, a good glass of red wine with dinner makes it complete:) Happy T day!

  5. how nice to double this painting with your real Food. cheers!!

  6. Lovely painting and I like your version of it, too. Enjoy your wine! Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  7. I love what you show this T-Day! Fantastic take on the painting!
    Happy T-Day!

  8. Your glass may not have a stem, but it still makes for a lovely still life. Very clever. Happy T Day

  9. Fantastic post! Love YOUR still life!
    Happy T-day

  10. Divers i follow this lady .. Ginger Cook on YouTube... she's been teaching me to paint...ahem... trying to anyway.. and she's been painting alot of the old masters lately and this reminds so much of what she's been painting... and reminds me that i have class with her tonight..lol Happy T day! Hugs! deb

  11. I have always been a BIG fan of Pissarro. I feel like he was always overshadowed by Manet and Monet, but his work was no less relevant as an impressionist and post-impressionist painter. I always look for his art in any gallery I visit.

    Your lovely vignette is quite appropriate for T this week, as is the Pissarro painting. I hope you find the right wine you like. It sounds like you like this. I am not a drinker of anything alcoholic, but I still enjoy reading your trials and tribulations at finding the right wine for you.

    Thanks for sharing your lovely vignette, the beautiful painting, and your wine choice with us for T this Tuesday.

  12. Its a fantastic still life painting and your version looks lovely.
    I like stubby glasses with short stems, they seem to have more stability on the table.
    Happy T day wishes.

  13. Oh, oh, Sterling Vintner's. I've been to the winery a number of times. It sits up on the hillside. The parking lot is at the bottom of the hill and you ride a tram up to the Winery and tasting room. The view of the Napa Valley from the tram is spectacular. So much fun.

    I like the still life you created to reflect the one in the painting.

  14. Love that painting.
    Your still life looks very festive!

  15. I like the Pissarro painting you chose, D. In fact I like all his work. What a fun replica you created. Nicely done.

    Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen
