Fruit plate

Painting by Vicky Christensen, acrylic on 14 x 18 inch canvas 
I finished the still life. Here is what the pastel/glazing fluid underpainting looked like before I started glazing on the color:
Underpainting, black pastel, acrylic glazing medium, titanium white acrylic

My optometrist says I have cataracts  (not too advanced yet, very common at my age). She says when I reach the stage where I have them removed, colors will suddenly look much brighter. I'm wondering what this painting will look like then. I can't imagine it being more colorful!
