this morning done, because it's been a busy day with
other commissioned work. I don't usually paint fruit,
but I like to when it's in season. In Toronto
winter is so snowy, that the thought of fruit trees is
almost too luxurious to contemplate in the midst of
January. But now, with every tree heavily laden with
apples, peaches, plums -- my oh my, it's
exciting. I hope that excitement translates into my
little paintings. And just like Julie Davis cruising
down the highway deciding to stop for peaches,
everyone living where fruit ripens in late July,
early August can almost yearns for that fresh
fruit taste. Yum.
Have an eating-the-fruits-of-the-land day.
