Artist Note

Every year I paint the pomegranates 
when in season. 
I got a call from a friend telling me 
her poms were gorgeous 
and she invited me over to paint.


It had been quite a while since I had painted 
so this was a real treat. 

Hope you are all surviving these
powerful and awful events...
Covid, the protests, the fires and hurricanes.
Who would have every thought it 
was all possible when
wishing everyone 
A Happy New Year...
Sheesh!
Please stay safe and sane.

    1. Thank you David. Stresses caused by all you mention are only bearable by my hubby's good humour, long walks and turning off the darned TV!
      Your wonderful long post gave me a vacation of interest and beauty. Thank you. (Cutest baby ever!)

    Yes, I’m waiting patiently for our Country to get back to the way it was. Now they’re saying that we’re not having a Thanksgiving parade.!! Talk about change. SAD!

    1. Happy you liked the colors. Thanks my dear Hilda.
      I cannot wait for life to get back to normal...or will it ever be back like it was?. Didn’t know about the Thanksgiving Parade. Oh boy! It was neat seeing your wonderful painting of Little Italy - so real it brought back good memories.
      Congratulations on your significant wedding anniversary. Shame it could not be celebrated with a bang. Glad your family all are doing well.
      Sending a big hug.

  3. What a treat to paint pomegranates "in the wild" -- lucky you! This looks lovely, complete with a blue sky peeping through the lush leaves. Happy to see you painting, Julie. It has been a time of distraction. We're all struggling to maintain our equilibrium, I think. Stay safe and well.❤

    1. How sweet you are to send good supportive comments on my blog as well as Instagram. Thank you. I agree about us all struggling to maintain equilibrium. Most days are easy and then others are not! I was so happy to get out and paint my friends tree.
      Keep safe and creative, good buddy.

  6. Great pomegranates, those contrasts, those volumes, the green ones, it turned out very well.
    I hope that they are also well out there, in this fateful 2020, that we can survive, with that is enough.
    Regards.
