Peaches cause a lot of excitement in our family. My husband Steven is masterful
at canning peaches without sugar. And we enjoyed delicious canned peaches this
year until about the end of March. I like to freeze peaches, and didn't do enough
of that last summer. But wow I love them.
I love this painting, which is more of less the exact still life of what I have on my
kitchen table right now. And marking the stages of the year by peaches tells me
that 1. I think the peaches may be a little early this year, and 2. If not we are almost
at the end of summer, so enjoy every minute. In Canada, that is a vital suggestion.
I love painting still life works of my favourite food, and favourite meals. So
I hope you enjoy seeing this piece again. Happy peach party.
