Avacado, Guacamole, and a Bit of Art

Painting this little 4x6 painting was especially fun. Working to create just the right color and the roundness of that seed is what I focused on as I painted. The wrinkled black skin of the avacado which can just barely be seen was another feature that gave the fruit its character and was a pleasure to paint. It is on the drying rack and will be ready for a new home in a few weeks.

ah, my favorite! Had one at lunch and dinner today.

I like how you can see the creamy-ness of it to the bottom right of the pit...beautiful color too
