  2. Peach fuzz is an amazing thing to accomplish. I wish you had written it down. Great piece. Wonderful color and subject. I wish I could see it in person. Large pieces just don't get their due on the internet.
    I don't know Donna Dewberry, but she could be one of my husband's distant southern cousins. I have notice her books at Aaron Bros. Donna Dewberry, Dori Dewberry, both have that cute da da sound. Thanks for your comment too.

  5. When I saw the thumbnail for your blog in my blog list, I thought it was a box o' nectarines, but that thought disappeared as soon as I opened it up -- yes, the fuzz is working.

  6. Yes! I wish you did take some notes on how you made that wonderful peach fuzz. Sometimes its just a little fuzz that separates the peaches from the nectarines...

  10. Another fine piece, aRt, and glad it worked out for you in a rush and with a cold! It's not the fruit that makes these so well painted but your use of color throughout and what you add to the fruit: the color of the box, the addition of some greens showing up, the edges around the box rim. You know your colors and use them to create great harmony and interest. Good luck with the show.

  11. The grass in this one reminds me of a poppy painting of yours from I guess a little while back. I remember loving how they made little shadows on the sidewalk and I love how the grass in this one does the same thing. And the peach fuzz! Oh my!

  12. Hey R. you've got a great series going on here. And I empathize with your super-sonic speed painting... I've got two weeks to finish a series for delivery. Have you tried the two-easels-with-a-brush-in-each-hand technique? It's not as easy as it sounds.

    Wonderful work as always!

  14. R..
    I know I've said it before (and probably everyone else has too) but I can't figure out how you manage to consistently produce such gorgeous refined and well done work especially when you consider how quickly you do it.

    You are amazing and so is your work.

    If you ever do figure out how you did the peach fuzz, it would be fun to learn about.

    PS.... Don't take that cough lightly. It can flatten you in a moment!! YOU are more important than your work or your blog or .....

    TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!!

  15. How on earth did you manage to paint that fuzz on the peaches? These look so perfectly ripe and ready to eat. Lovely!

  16. Hi R!
    This painting is a delight for my eyes! First of all, the peaches skins, a masterpiece on themselves, and then the touches of grass, the strong shadows, the sidewalk! I love it.
    Hope you're doing better and the cough is gone!
    Best regards,
    Carolina

  18. Hi R.,

    These are glorious. I hope the cold clears up quickly. A lot of people have it all the way over herein Toronto. I wonder if the lovely peaches we just enjoyed were from your area.
    Get better.

    What a superb painter you are!

    Take care,

    Barbara

  19. I agree with everyone about the fuzz; I've never tried painting peaches myself but am always so impressed when someone pulls it off so well.
