daily painting | stormy still life

These persimmons (and lime) are about ready to put in tonight’s salad so I thought I’d best do another still life of one of my favorite fruity subjects using this marvelous ArtGraf water soluble graphite, thanks to a gift from a dear friend. The fruit wasn’t so stormy but boy the weather outside sure was — now there are gorgeous fluffy pink-edged clouds out the window as the sun checks out for the day. Fickle, moody grays outside as well as inside. More explorations of this new medium to come. Maybe we’ll get some electrical storm action (when my grandson was very little he called thunder “the big windy”). Stay warm and safe out there.
