Peaches in Pastel

I decided I wanted some Blue in there:)

Last Saturday at the farmers market, I was next
to a woman selling peaches and nectarines.
I have never tasted fruit as good as the
sliced piece of nectarine she gave me.
Oh my Lord. it tasted like a juicy SweetTart!

Inspired by those gorgeous peaches and
nectarines, this was
painted from an online reference photo- I like to paint
directly from my monitor when using a photo,
it's better than looking at a flat image.
It's 10" x 7" Soft Pastel on Wallis sanded paper.

I have framed it to take to the market this Saturday. I
normally wouldn't take an original pastel, but it's framed, and
I think it's small enough that I can keep it from harm.

hope someone at the market falls in love with it,
it won't hurt if I am once again next to
the Peach Lady!
