With the drought we are experiencing, I have yet to find a persimmon in the grocery store, and my generous student whose family raises them, saddens me as he reports there are no persimmons -- due to a late frost, high heat, no rain. SIGH!
Undeterred, I decide to find a photo to drool over and wish from, and try, yet another fall, to capture these persimmons in a more 'painterly' fashion.
This is my third attempt, and one I'm fairly pleased with, and a bit better, in my humble opinion, of my attempts last year (see viewfromtheoak.blogspot.com -- and search for 'persimmon'). When I did this same search and rediscovered the bounty I had last year, well, I just had to sigh!
Guess I'll have to be happy with an improving persimmon PAINTING instead of a persimmon pudding! LOL
