daily painting | pomegranate

Well I was really into the pears again today, so I did a few more watercolor paintings of the arrangement. Crap results (was I hoping for a good one to post? That always derails me). So I tried several versions of pomegranates and persimmons and this was my final attempt. Made it more of a fruit fantasy with pen marks. I love this lush fruit! Nice shapes and gorgeous colors and that wonderful pointy stem. Feeling sad today and Indigo Girls songs made me cry while I painted. Losses, family illnesses, longings. And yet! Also grace and healing. I guess it’s good I gave up a long time ago on life being a nice straight line with predictable events. Maybe wisdom? Well dammit it’s MY life. No one else’s.
