Mangos Diptych

Mangos: Ripe and Almost Ripe {diptych} – both together 4.5” x 11” (11.4 x 27.9 cm) –
Oil on Linen Panel


I am happy to say that today rained and thus the construction was unable to move forward today, so I had a somewhat sane day. The weather predicts it will rain tomorrow as well, so I am hopeful that the construction will not be able to go on tomorrow as well. So I can spend some stress free time in the studio.

Here is a painting I completed a little over a week ago. It is of one of my favorite subjects, mangos. I bought a box of them and I liked how there was varying ripeness found with the fruit. I have since diced them up and pureed them for future snacks and recipes.

I have had a busy day and ready to call it quits. Until next time, thanks for sharing time with me : )

Gorgeous colors in the mangoes, Liz. Beautifully done.

Glad you got bonus time to work in your studio. The rain has been amazing, hasn't it?

Hi Elizabeth,

Thanks for stopping by and saying hello. The rain has been amazing and I am loving it!

I like how the reflection of red ties the two together.
I absolutely LOVE a day when it rains all day and I can stay in my cozy house. Food for the soul.

Thanks Mary!

We had rain today as well, and I agree with you rainy days are all about getting cozy at home :)
