'So tell me,' he continued, 'what do you paint? Portraits, landscapes? Perhaps pretty still lifes of fruit and flowers?''Believe me,' I said earnestly, 'my work is not worth discussing.''Oh none of that,' replied Rembrandt. 'You must show me some of your creations.' He shoved the parcel of apples across the table.'Here, take these. Arrange and paint them. A simple study just to show what you can do. I give you six days. Return here with the piece on the seventh day so I can see what you have done.'Flustered, I stammered, 'I'm not sure I can...''Of course you can!' he insisted, misunderstanding my response. I meant to tell him that I didn't know how I could get back to wherever it is I was, but he thought I was trying to beg off doing the painting altogether.I took the apples and said, 'I can't promise to come back, but I'll try.'Even as I spoke, the noisy tavern and the great man faded and I awoke with a start to find myself still sitting on the couch, the music from the old days still playing in the background.The very next day, even though it had all been a dream, I went and got some apples that looked as much like the ones Rembrandt had given me as I could find.Then, envisioning how an artist of the Dutch Golden Age might have portrayed them, I set to work. Here I show you my 21st-century attempt. ~ Copyright 2014 RC deWinter Excerpted from a longer piece about an imaginary encounter with Rembrandt.
