Mature Nectarines

Three Nectarines
Copyright 2007 Sheila Cantrell

Here's the latest daily painting. These three nectarines (bless their hearts) have been patiently waiting around in the frig for better than a week. There was a fourth which my daughter sampled the other day. She threw it out after a couple of bites because it was too mushy. Fortunately, these three still looked good even if they are past the crisp stage. I keep buying fruit to paint and then getting distracted with other subject matter. The fruit bin in the refrigerator has been slowly filling up with an assortment of fruits in various stages of ripeness/decay. My family is well-trained after all the years that I have been doing still lifes. They pretty much always ask before they eat whether or not the fruit is for consumption or art. Who could ask for more consideration than that?
