The Season of Persimmon

Do you like to eat Persimmons?  I really do not.  They are too mushy inside for my taste – but my husband scoops them up and eats them with great gusto.  I’d rather just appreciate their outer beauty.  I enjoy the delicate frosty-white finish on the skin and the amazing detail of the leaves and square center/top.  In fact, if you have a jeweler’s loupe or magnifying glass – do use it to inspect the top of a persimmon.  

As of late, I’ve been happily busy with my volunteer position – hence the delay in posting and painting.  Hope you like the Persimmon Art – it was once for sale – but no longer as I gave it to Celia for Christmas.  Ho Ho Ho!

Peppers, get some!

I hear it snowed in Evergreen today whilst sunny here in So. Cal.  Most of my day spent weaving in and out of traffic in Santa Monica.  I went to Whole Foods in west L.A. and then Trader Joe’s and then the long drive back – all the way up the PCH to the far end of Malibu.  I didn’t buy any peppers today but I am posting a photo of a pepper painting I created a few years back.  It’s still one of my favorites.  Hope you like it!
