Two old friends

Sad circumstances occasionally bring old works of mine back to me, and this is one of those. 'Tazza with fruit' harks back to the early '90s and was sold to a dear old man we knew and loved who is no longer with us. The picture has come back to me and is a poignant reminder of my old friend.
Twenty years ago I was struggling to paint in oils and would have set this up as a test of painting skills, and some parts of it are better than others. Life and painting are journey, my friend and his painting of mine testify of the past.
Both were eager explorations of life.
