THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The Grapes and Pomegranates painting features several pomegranates, these fruits often used to symbolize an undying sort of love that nothing can break. A number of pomegranates painted here suggests an overflowing and overwhelming sense of love the painter has for another. This is furthered by the grapes that are pictured, as grapes are thought to symbolize a feeling of luxury, wealth and abundance, something that someone deeply in love often feels. The water pitcher in the back has a long stem from which water can flow freely, representing how easy it is for the artist to share their love.
