When I was trying to decide what to do for this month's copy cat challenge, I was looking through Victoria Magazine's Holiday Bliss Edition: and I fell in love with this photo.
I love it because it reminds me of an old Dutch master's painting. Legend says that the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden was the pomegranate, although the Bible does not mention the fruit's name. I love how the pomegranate is front and center in this still life. The lacy linen in the bowl is also very romantic, but I do not want to paint lace again any time soon.

Because the lace was so challenging, I did not paint the border on the bowl. I sort of don't like the design on it, and I just kept the black rim.
I hope you have lots of fun activities planned for Valentine's Day. I know I do! Please join Debbiedoo for her Valentine Edition of the Copy Cat Challenge!
Until next time...
