When I lived in California I had a persimmon tree in my backyard and I have been enamored with this fruit ever since. I loved in the winter when all the leaves had fallen from the tree and these bright orange fruits where dangling from all the branches. That is the inspiration for this painting.
I'm feeling honored and blessed to be able to do what I love to do and it's just icing on the cake when my work is recognized by jurors to be included into exhibitions with other talented artists. Found out this weekend that my painting Bird's Eye View which is the header for my blog and Facebook page, was selected by juror Karlyn Holman for the Annual Central Florida Watercolor Society Exhibition. Karlyn is a nationally recognized watercolor artist, teacher and author. If you are in the central Florida area, the exhibition will be at the Sanford Welcome Center, Sanford, Florida, March 28-April 22.
