The colors of autumn and the ripening pomegranites were the inspiration for this pastel. I liked the idea of a casual arrangement for the various fruits and enjoyed the simple addition of the tablecloth as a contrast.
It was an enjoyable piece to paint. Hope you enjoy it too!

This beautiful still life seems so appropriate for the fall of the year...(I just realized the autumnal equinox has occured without my being conscious of it! ) Nicely executed.

I love the style of this...realistic, but still painterly with lots of life and richness! Really nice!

Wonderful, what a bountiful harvest. I like the contrast in the warm fruits and the cool cloth.

I love the natural tumble of fruit portrayed here instead of some carefully set up grouping. Makes this very enjoyable and a real feast for the eyes.
