The Fruits of Summer

Apples, small painting by Judith ShawI’ve started working on a series of small triptychs which celebrate the everyday.  Each triptychs has one piece that is 8″ x 8″ and two that are 6″ x 6″.

Here we have Apples, oil on canvas mounted on plywood, 8″ x 8″.  Full confession – it began as watermelons, but something happened along the way and it became apples.  Kind of weird.

Oranges, small painting by Judith ShawAnd next up is Oranges.  This one is also oil on canvas mounted on plywood, 6″ x 6″.  Someone on facebook commented on this piece, saying that it’s happy.  So that’s exactly the point, taking joy in our mundane world.  Orange juice anyone?

 

Strawberry, small painting by Judith ShawAnd last but not least, we have Strawberry, also done with oil on canvas mounted on plywood, 6″ x 6″.   I have enjoyed all the wonderful fruits of summer this year.  Only a little bit longer to be able to buy or harvest them locally.

What’s your favorite fruit?

  1. Did you know that orange is the color of happiness?

  2. I did not know that. Good to know and very fitting.
