Daily Painting 1454 SOLD Golden Guavas Alla Prima

 SOLD  I painted these from life, they are from my guava tree in the back yard.  The thing has gone crazy this year with the wet summer we have had, it has dozens of guavas.  I am the only one in my family who likes them, I have about gotten to my point of saturation.  I have been eating fresh off the tree, I made guava bread, guava smoothie, guava cobbler, and gave a bunch away.  I figure next I'll try freezing some.

The painting is all done with the painting knife and is oil, 8 x 10 inches on masonite.


A nice comment I received:
"Oh look at the gorgeous greens!! I am thinking that the guava cobbler and ... one of the other things you mentioned (can't remember and post isn't above the comment box for me to see) sounds delicious!! I love the almost tropical feel of this piece without going too far with it. Definitely Floridian!"

Thanks! For the greens it was mainly cadmium yellows and manganese blue.
I liked the guava bread and smoothies the best. I like the fresh the most.
