oil on canvas

I know nothing about these fruits?, veggies?, except they have one of the most vibrant shades of orange skin I've ever seen. It just occurred to me that I might have investigated them further after using them but I got lost in details and the next time I touched them was to dispatch them to the trash. What a waste. Shame too because I could be saying so much more about them right now.

  1. Wow; these are beautiful! The color, form and reflections are all wonderful. You nailed it.

  2. I love the reflections on the persimmons, this is really a nice little gem

  3. There are two kinds of persimmons
    One type is bitter and is not ready to eat until it softens like jelly
    The other type is eaten hard like an apple
    the preferred type in Asia
    We had several trees growing up
    the branches are quite brittle and you would never think of trying to climb a persimmon tree
    Your persimmons look reddish but that is probably due my computer screen marklandesfineart blogspot

  4. Gorgeous color and reflections! I'm not much help on the fruit. My Auntie had a bush and I recall that they can cause a mean pucker if they aren't ripe. Your's look delicious!

  5. Diana MB, thank you so much. These were fun to do. I figured it's time to stop looking for things to paint and just paint! Thanks again.

    Delilah, thank you very much.

    Mark, thank you! I was hoping someone would save a trip to Wikipedia. And yes, they're a tad more orange than red in real life.

    Gwen, thanks so much.

  6. Look delicious!!! I usually eat persimmons and your oil looks real!!

  7. Vibrant and dramatic, Suzanne!
