Juicy Cantaloupe, 6 x 6 "oil on gessobord panel, ©2012 Fay Terry
I have recently ditched my oatmeal habit. Cool mornings seemed to require it, these sunny mornings make me want a cold breakfast. Cantaloupe is a favorite but ripeness is unpredictable. I rely on the sniff test which declares that if either end smells nice like the fruit, it's ready. Usually it works with practice, of course.
This gray background looks really nice on just about any kitchen wall or on a small display easel which is included with the painting.
