"Persimmons and Walnuts" Oil on 5x7 board

Here is my second persimmon painting, when they were riper and more orange colored.  It's my last for now...(of the persimmons), they sat for too long and were way to ripe to keep around any longer.

Work in progress... 


  1. Didn't you eat the persimmons, Debbie? They are actually ideal to eat when a bit over-ripe; any less and they leave a weird film on the teeth.
    Lovely work!

    1. Thanks Judy, I've never tried a persimmon, and I meant to, but by the time I got to finish painting them, they were so squishy soft I didn't think they'd be any good to, maybe next time!

  2. Beautiful work! Thanks for sharing your process!

  3. I'm speechless !!! AGAIN!! Absolutely perfect!!

  4. I love both of these paintings. Thanks for sharing your works in progress. It is so informative to see how other artists approach a painting. I like the idea of using acrylics for the underpainting because they dry quickly.
