30 Paintings In 30 Days-Day 11

Kumquats On The Table, 6 x 6" oil on panel, ©2015, Fay Terry

This painting is on hold.

This painting was finished in no time at all and I am very happy with it. I hope you like it, too. I set this up in my studio shadow box and it came together quickly once I decided on the composition. I wanted the red grapefruit to be the star, but tomorrow I want to pose the kumquats front and center.

I am finding that it is so much fun to paint my food. Kumquats are delicious and will be in the stores until March. I have always loved the sweet and sour combination. The skin is sweet when ripe and the inside is somewhat tart. You can eat the whole fruit but they do have seeds, which I don't mind.

On another note, this has been a great basketball week-end. My Tarheels beat Louisville, and NC State beat Duke, so I've been happily watching these games.


  1. Love your work!! Nice piece here!

  2. Fay, love these colors! Congrats for taking on the 30 day challenge!

  3. Woaw! This is so appetizing & inviting!
    Your painting is so lively and joyous!

  4. Congratulations on doing the 30 in 30 challenge. Love your colors. So joyful.

  5. Wonderful piece, Fay! I'll have to try some kumquats the next time I see them. Always wondered what they tasted like and how to eat them.
