Many Blind Peaches
Painting - Watercolor/pastel
First, I will say, yes, I intentionally used 'many' instead of 'mini'. I know it's not the most brilliant play on words, but, hey, better than using a boring title like, 'Bowl Of Peaches'.
A perfect painting for any country kitchen decor.
After placing this bowl of peaches on the window sill to further ripen the fruit, I saw the cool shapes and lines that was created by the mini blinds and photographed it with my film camera. It took me four years to get the courage to paint the intimidating image. Ocassionally, I would come across the photo and think about how to tackle it. One day, I decided it was time. I painted it in 4 hours. So, when someone asks me how long it took to paint this, I say, 4 years and 4 hours.
