So realistic, I thought it was a photograph! Incredible how lighting and shadows are incorporated to add that realism. A great find!
Ginnie Hart: I know, Steven. Exactly as you have said!
another excellent painting. i wonder what is the yellow substance in what i assume should be salt, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ayush. Since we in America often put rice in salt to keep the moisture out, I wonder if it is yellow rice or some equivalent?
A great still life Ginnie, who needs a camera ? smile
Ginnie Hart: I know, exactly, Frank!
Un tableau très réaliste, on y croit.
Ginnie Hart: Very much so, Martine!

Mind blowing, so good, what a talented painter that is, Ginnie. Indeed some people don't need more than that. "What a way to kill good food", but that is just my humble opinion.
@Ayush, the yellow is rice to keep the salt dry. A trick that is used in the Netherlands, our humiditylevel is sometimes very high
Ginnie Hart: It really WAS hard to believe this wasn't a photograph, Astrid. And yes, before seeing your comment here, I told Ayush that in America we use white rice to absorb any moisture, so I guessed this was yellow rice. Right on, then! Thanks.
The light and colours are beautiful on these kitchen utensils. Have a nice day Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Marie. The realism blows me away.

Heck - he can paint well Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: I know, Chris. And this (as well as the egg on Monday) was at least 4 x 3 feet big on the wall!
Bravo pour ce tableau si réaliste ! Merci
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Claudine, and merci.

Oh this is very good, too, The painting looks just like a photograph. What a great talent the artist has.
Ginnie Hart: I totally agree, Alan!

Gorcums Museum seems to be full of treasures!
Ginnie Hart: And it switches to a new exhibition about 3-4 times a year, Philine, so with our annual museum card, it's a joy to visit any time we want!

I was amazed when I read the size of this picture, Ginnie, and still so realistic
Ginnie Hart: I know, Lisl. You'd swear it was a photograph!
Vinegar? Well you would if there were chips!
Ginnie Hart: HA! True that, Bill. smile

I don’t touch the outer two Ginnie, but I love pepper. Good painting.
Ginnie Hart: The same for me, Chad. I don't cook with salt but I DO like pepper!

On dirait les vrais

Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, JP.
Wat ik nog meer nodig heb ?
Iets om er onder te leggen
Echt grappig mooi schilderij en foto.
Ginnie Hart: Well, yes, Marjolein. Something to put under it, indeed. HA! Bedankt.
Coming from Malaysia, chilli sauce is a must have. wink

Are ketchup and mayo still not free from fast food chains in NL? How can they charge you money for ketchup? wink
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, even in America that is true for ketchup, LC. Some things just come for free. smile

voor mij volstaat dit Ginnie..

ik zou niet meteen aan een schilderij gedacht hebben...

have a nice day
Ginnie Hart: For me, Willy, the pepper is enough. smile But yes, you'd never know it was a painting, for sure.

Just study how super realistic the light reflects from the objects. Just perfect.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Louis. This painter really knows what he's doing!
I'm with Bill, where's the Vinegar. I also hadn't realised at first it is a painting, it's very good.
Ginnie Hart: It's amazing, Brian, isn't it!
I like his photorealistic style. I use rice in my salt too.
Ginnie Hart: It's fun to see that he included the rice in his painting, Care! smile I used rice in my salt for years when I lived in Atlanta.

such nostalgia here. i love this.
Ginnie Hart: We might not think twice about photographing it, Sherri, but painting it has been the lovely surprise for me. smile
A fine work of art! I see how the salt granules aren't as detailed there... Those would take a lot, and I mean a lot, of patience... smile
Ginnie Hart: I suppose you're right, Sudipto!
a wonderful painting Ginnie... i like the way that he captures the look of the glass on the salt and pepper shakers....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Peter. It was so fun to see.
A great trio, Ginnie! There's a fine quality to the image smile
Ginnie Hart: He's a genius at realism, Martin.
Another great photo of a great painting!
I was going to ask the same as Ayush... I guess in the dry west we never saw the need! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeth. You only need the rice in salt when it's humid, of course!
