Equality and Diversity.

I climbed on a ladder and I cut a big branch off the tree. I placed the branch with yellow quinces on a red high table. I chose a blue background.

For some reason, I often end up with the primary colors. I do not do this premeditated, it just happens.

I made a study with charcoal on a piece of paper of the proportions and as a result, I decided which dimensions the panel should have. I wanted to keep the still life as simple as possible. I did not want to fill all space with things, but let spaces speak.

The fruits are equal, but diverse in their appearance.
