Pomegranates


Pomegranates

I began this watercolor at lunch yesterday, knowing that Teresa and I would have dinner together and my sketch time when I returned to the B&B would be severely limited. I got in most of the painting and layering at lunch and finished it late last night.

The poms are making their way into our grocery stores -- and I love them. They were always a holiday treat for us from Thanksgiving to Christmas. And as a bunus, they're filled with wonderful vitamins and all good healthy things! My daughter sent me some incredible tea with pomegranate flavorings -- yum!

And with mornings like this, cold and brisk, the flavored tea sure tastes great!

Lin - I love the rich colors of this. I've never eaten a persimmon, but I did see them in the store the other day and was tempted to buy one to paint. I may do that yet!!! Good work!

Oh what a gorgeous painting. And the tea sounds wonderful. I notice they are putting poms in various juices and teas now, making some interesting combinations. I never developed a taste for them but love how gorgeous they are -- the color so rich!
Hugs,

These are positively luscious Lin! I can almost smell and taste them. Juicy! Great job.

Wonderful poms! You've captured that shiny skin perfectly. Don't they have such personality? I found new GIANT ones in the grocery store the other day, but just couldn't bring myself to buy even more of them.

You are spoiling me, Lin, with all that warm and delicate red in your recent paintings. Beautiful. Love the rendition of seeds.
