Painting of the Week

"Grapes and Peach," (I should really think of a more unique title) is the second in my new series I call Painting of the Week. I know, it sounds a lot like A Painting a Day, but it takes me a little longer to complete even one of these Small Gems when painting in the indirect method of the Old Masters as I do.  Because the indirect method uses multiple layers of glazes, the resulting painting has a luminosity and depth that can only be achieved using the indirect method.  I hope that you enjoy these Little Gems along with the lines of prose that describe what inspired me to paint it in the first place.

The Promise

Now the flowers have fallen
For they have withered and died.
Stems full of promise,
Budding with life
Waiting to bring forth 
New Fruit
