Basket of Peaches on Blue
There's just something about a basket of fresh peaches that gets me every time. I want to pick one up and take a deep breath to smell it. If you see beautiful peaches in the grocery store, go ahead... sniff one. If you don't smell a thing, put it right back where you found it. If the vendor at the farmers' market has peaches, go ahead... smell them. Then hand him your money and let him put them into your reusable cloth bag. 😉
This isn't the first time I've painted a basket of peaches. My inspiration is "Basket of Peaches" done by Joseph Decker in 1885. It is my favorite painting in Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. His may be worth a million dollars more than mine, but I love them both.
