Sharon #591























SOLD
I'm now going to name my paintings people names.

No, no, I'm not, this is what this fruit is called. I thought it was a persimmon, but this persimmon looking creature is more square in shape and therefore is a Sharon - when did fruits start getting first names?

  1. Square fruit...wouldn't that make this a cubist painting? Harhar. I like the softer edging and rougher stroke texture on some of the apple surfaces. Different brush or just technique?

  2. Hi Lisa, I have to tell you that is so interesting about the Sharon persimmons...when I finally found some in Athens there were squared off "Sharons" and then others that were tall, lopsided and hardly looked the same. Who knew?? I really like the 3 green apples with it. You are just good!

  4. Really wonderful job! There are some funny fruits out there, to be sure. I moved to Asia a year ago, and you should see some of the crazy fruit out here!

  5. I love this - the rhythm of the 'dance' of the fruit~ I tried to get to your blog from the FB post - but couldn't - usually, on other people's FB posts I can - I wonder why that is? I've tried it on a number of your posts, it takes me to your 'page', but I'm looking for your blog!

  6. Love this composition! I especially like the dissonance with three similar items and one distinctly different. It makes me want to sing "One of these things is not like the other..." (I guess I watched too much Sesame Street.) Did I mention I love it.

  7. Fruits started getting first names when Gwyneth Paltrow named her daughter Apple!

  8. Hi! Thank you!
    Carolyn, I had that song stuck in my head when I painted it!

    Oh, I used the same brush - I seem to have become used to this one type - (University 237 #8 by Winsor Newton - just a little less paint on the brush and I didn't spray anything with water first.
