It's cold here in Wisconsin--snow and below zero temperatures already in mid-November. I thought I'd do a little fruit series, but have only felt passionately about painting the pomegranate and this grapefruit so far. I wait anxiously all year for these two fruits to be at their peek. They help make this cold time of year so much more enjoyable!

Pomegranates are definitely one of my favorite fruits and something I've been wanting to paint for a long time. I had just finished up a few Christmas commissions, and finally got up the courage to give it a try. Couldn't be happier with the way this came together--it looks good enough to eat! I was able to use the palette knife a bit in the finishing and think it gave some great depth to the painting.
