Persimmons
8" x 18"
oil

My girlfriend's mom has a persimmons tree in her backyard. I have never had a persimmons before this year myself. It's a clean sweet taste and rather yummy.  Next year I'm hoping to paint them on the tree.

Studio on wheels
8" x 10"
oil

when I was out painting this,  the owner crawled out and started talking to me about his ride.  He called it his "studio on wheels."  He was a musician and a very proud of this mobile unit.  I would love to have something like this to travel and paint the country.
