"Fruits... like having their portrait painted. They seem to sit there and ask your forgiveness for fading. Their thought is given off with their perfumes. They come with all their scents, they speak of the fields they have left, the rain which has nourished them, the day breaks they have seen." — Paul Cezanne
On the last day of my recent figure painting workshop our live model was a no show due to icy roads. Thus this lush divided family of colorful fruits volunteered to come to our rescue in bright allure. However, there must have been serious trouble in as they carefully kept their distance and never said a word to each other all day. Such a pity. In spite of the family feud going on, they were an interesting group to paint. I especially loved the reflections their fiery anger created on the sides of the copper pot.
