Persimmons, 8 x 10 inches, oil on panel, available.

Here is another painting in the classical realism mode. As usual I went over to the produce section at the market, and stared at the fruit until I found something interesting to paint. These persimmons made me think of a very famous sumie-e painting called Five Persimmons that I just love. The persimmons ripened as I worked on the painting, each day they had become a richer color.
