December 24 - Persimmon Painting and Cats
Almost midnight, and time to send out the daily painting for Christmas. Well, not really, as persimmons aren't what the season is all about, however, it was "on the plate" so to speak.
This is a quickly done second pass on these fellows, and I learned something really important. If you use fresh fruit, did you know you have a limited amount of time to capture their essence before dehydration or a curious cat comes in to change things? I do, however, have more persimmons, so after the holiday tomorrow, I'll cut and set out another set and see if I can't find my way again. Cat decided they were more interesting if put on the floor. That's Pesto, one of two studio cats. I've painted her a couple of times
