10 x 10 oil on canvas panel
available through The Farmers & Merchants Gallery
I really admire all of you out there who paint
stripes on a regular basis and make it look so easy!
I had such a hard time with the perspective. Blame
it on my Mr. Magoo Astigmatism.
I found these Pomegranates on my walk around the
neighborhood. Two looked too sparse so I added the
pear for color contrast and shape variation.
I've always gotten Pomegranates and Persimmons
confused. Probably started at a young age because
they are both long words that start with P.
In fact, I had to rename this painting and rewrite the
entire post because once again I confused the two! I see
native Persimmon trees everywhere so mistakenly thought
that's what these were since the foliage looked like one.
I didn't even know Pomegranates grew here in Texas!
These 2 in the painting are obviously not ripe because
the Poms I usually see in the store are bright red.
Thanks to the many Followers who pointed out my mistake!
