Peaches, Peaches, Peaches!

12x12 Original Oil Painting

Recently, some friends of ours from church gifted us with some peaches.  They were beautiful.  They said that this had been one of those years the peaches did well.  They had been healthy, didn't need much maintenance and weren't wormy in spite of not having been treated.  How good is this????  Oklahoma has such extreme conditions on their fruit trees, vegetable and flower gardens.  When we get a good year with moisture at the right time, we can have a harvest dance (lol), just before we eat our crops!  They tasted heavenly and I was so delighted when one of them still had leaves attached to it.  The leaves brought the natural and fresh look I needed when composing them in a still life.  Loved doing this one and I did a small 6x6 painting of them below:  Both can be found in my Etsy store.
