"Papaya and Friends" Painting Just About Done...
I've enjoyed painting this scene. Papayas are beautiful with their piles of seeds an beautiful color ... and I've long been a fan of painting lemons.
I may have a few touch-ups to do on this one, but since I'm dismantling the still life, those will have to be done from a combination of memory and photography. I much prefer working from life, but I think the Great Falls Foundation for the Arts needs its classroom space cleared out. (That's where I've been painting -- since this was setup yesterday for my still life class demo.)
