Pomegranates 12" x 12"

I am still working on the baby/skunk cabbage thingy, but here is a smaller still life that I began yesterday. I am recovering from the push to finish the portfolio and the race to finish my last very large painting. This seems a little easier to tackle right now. I am considering it as part of a larger piece - three or perhaps nine same sized canvases with more pomegranates. We will see. Happy New Year to everyone!

Happy new year, indeed! (happy birthday, too!)

The pomegranate is my favorite fruit and I love the rustic feel here. I hope it's okay to call it rustic. But when you get to thinking about it, pomegranates are kind of rustic-looking in person. Will you also be tackling the arils?

I had to look up "arils"...yes, sorry. So, I had thought of slicing one open and painting the seeds - perhaps even the stain I anticipate it leaving on the tablecloth. But it all depends on how well the pomegranates hold up and whether I can purchase replacements. The supermarkets were overflowing with them before Christmas, but on Saturday they were hard to find...

Claudine!!!! Thanks for the congratulatory message - and congrats to you too for getting a painting into a show!

Thanks too for all the comments you leave on my blog encouraging me with my art ... I really appreciate it (even if I'm sometimes slow to reply). I think part of this year's art goals will be to lean how to do skin tones :)

Happy New Year my lovely ...

Hugs
