Winter Fruit Medley

This is a little looser than I normally paint, and I'm pretty pleased with myself. It is a direction I am pursuing - some days better than others.

During the winter, the variety of fruits and vegetables available for a still life becomes somewhat meager. However, to the rescue come the yellows, reds and greens of lemons, limes and grapes. They are quite happy in each other’s company and hang on to their good looks much longer than their summer cousins. I appreciate them. Enjoy.

Lovely! Love the colors. The grapes just seem to glow.

Thanks, Debbie. Grapes are fun to paint, being somewhat translucent and all.

Thanks, Ric. As I said in the description, it was the beginning point of a looser direction.
