Pomegranate {a new daily painting}


{7" x 5" (17.8 x 12.7 cm) – oil on linen panel}
Unframed painting: $100.00 + S&H

I have had several pomegranates floating around the studio for awhile, as I love to paint them. Their round shape with the prickly crown makes them an interesting form to paint.

Another great thing about pomegranates are is that they keep FOREVER. At first they are perfectly round with a smooth surface and bright red to pink in color, then they age as the time wears on, turning dark red to magenta with areas of brown, their skin starts to wrinkle and get leathery, and they no longer are perfectly round, but in my opinion that just makes them more interesting.
