Day 14: juicy pomegranate

Pomegranates are one of my favorite fruits, both to eat and to look at. Turns out they’re also fun to paint.

If you’ll be in Munich on December 4th, please plan to stop by the Open Studio I will be hosting that afternoon. Details are coming soon and will be posted on my Facebook page. Invitations will also be going out to my mailing list – you can sign up here.

November is Art Every Day Month! I’ll be posting a new small painting here each and every day. After they have had time to dry (a couple weeks), the original paintings will also appear in my Etsy shop.

    I absolutely LOVE this. Fab fab colours, and I don’t mind admitting I actually started salivating looking at that pomegranate on the left.

    After pomegranites and leaves I had to go browsing. Munich – Theatinerkirche #2 absolutely channels Van Gogh (one of my all time favorite artists). Your work is fabulous!

    Thanks so much, all of you!

    @FranT – In a way they are coming off the page – there is a lot of 3D texture in the paint of the seeds (although this photo doesn’t register it very well).

    @Frau Dietz – It kind of makes me hungry, too. I need to put pomegranate on the shopping list! (This one had to get eaten pretty quickly, since it was open and all…)

    @Tammy – Thanks so much for taking the time to browse through my other work. I’m honored by the comparison!

  5. These sure do look JUICY! Ready to pull the seeds and eat them! :)
