Hello, hello,

We are sequestered inside except for our brisk walks in the sunshine here in Osoyoos.  I had a file of images I wanted to express in paint on canvas but I couldn't seem to settle down to the task, instead I was pacing, restless, starting a project, abandoning it, starting another.  Perhaps the pandemic had a psychological effect on me but I've surfaced again.  

It took me a while to complete this piece as I hadn't tried to create woodgrain in oil paint, only acrylic.  In 2019 when I was in Cambodia dragonfruit seemed to be on very plate, the Cambodian version has a bright pink interior--a fuchsia--with tiny black seeds.  

 

Oil on wooden cradle board 9 X 12" $150.  Shipping extra.
