    Thanks Gwen and thanks Chris..Renoir has always been my favourite.Love the vibrancy of his colors( the touch of red in most),how the light falls on his subjects..his umbrellas or the intricate laces.. You are so right Gwen, this piece of his art is brimming with so much what was I thinking when decided to do this in five lines??..whoa!!

    Hi Guatami- You choose a great artwork to write about! The luncheon party is such a busy piece of art--if one studies it, they may think Abe Lincoln is standing in the back of the painting talking to the lad with the black beret on. The awning was painted as one of the last touches. You captured the busyness of this painting nicely. Quivering tints alive is excellent. Gwendolen Gwendolen

    Superb ekphrasis here, Gautami. Sincerely. I have always enjoyed this particular painting. You did great in conveying the atmosphere, and the author's note is interesting too. Best wishes in Brian's contest.
