Two Peaches


6 in. x 6 in., oil on panel
SOLD
I did not paint this today.  It was my son's 7th birthday and with all the going-ons I didn't get a chance to paint or draw, so I thought I'd share a painting that I had done this past spring. These were tiny peaches from our peach tree. The previous year we had harvested a huge crop of fat peaches but this year,  guessing with the drought, we only got six or seven very little, but tasty, ones.  This painting also took me a couple long days to do in which I still could not get it right, but I do like the parts of the plate, the shadows and sections of the peaches.  I'll try and take a better photo of it to replace this one in the next couple of days.

  2. Beautiful surface on the peaches. Nice contrast with the knife.

  3. Oh, and: 7 years old?!?! Gotta put him in a crate now. He's not allowed to get any older. :)
