Peach Blossoms

This morning I found on our Loquat tree two sweet ripe loquats beckoning to be painted.   I went inside to do a few things and gather my materials to paint.  Earlier, I had told my boys 'don't touch the loquats until I get to paint them'. Well, while inside getting prepared, my boys were outside playing and 'forgot' and ate my loquats.  Sigh...

There's still loquats high up on the tree.  Maybe I could sacrifice a little branch and paint inside---later, if the mood returns.

This is one of the peach blossoms paintings that I did last spring.  This year the flowers came and went before I got a chance to paint them.  The young peaches are already the size of walnuts.
