Persimmon queen

It is persimmon season again and I can't resist them. Not to eat - in fact, though a ripe persimmon is quite sweet, I still find it an odd consistency - but to paint. They come in a lovely range of colors and their shapes are appealing and I always find myself hanging around the fruit and vegetable market across the street from my apartment looking for the perfect specimen. I perched the queen, above, on top of an upside down ceramic bowl; her subjects are at her feet.
The painting is 6" x 8" and can be purchased here, if you would like.
