Fresh Fruit is done!

Finally! It sure feels good to get a painting done for a change. Need to do this more often. I created two of these, though the lettering is different and the colors a bit different as I was playing around with color and style. I gave the other one to my stepmom for Christmas or a birthday, gosh I can't remember now. Anyway, this one has been sitting in a box waiting to get done. This is done on a 9" x 12" gallery wrap canvas so the sides are painted and it comes ready to hang. I'm putting this one up on my website at It can be yours for $145.

How terrific it is. I loved painting pears, etc when I was painting. But I was so slow I should have just painted rotten pears.

Lol Judy! Try apples, they last longer...:-). I take photographs and then copy them so I don't have to worry about losing the freshness. And after all is said and done, some things just come out better than others. I've redone the fruit lettering so many times this morning I'm cross eyed. So there you have it! Thanks for coming by...gotta go clean now.....
