Pomegranate, Persimmon, and Pear
There is just something about persimmons  -  the color of course, but also the shape, and the very shiny surface with that dusty blue coating.



I'm going to have to play around with some color mixing with this persimmon.  Maybe I'll try it in various color triads (variations of the primaries), although I think I already know that I would like quinacridone  burnt scarlet, quinacridone gold, and phthalo blue the best.

Middle Granddaughter and I watched Mirror Mirror this afternoon and I have been listening to the closing track , I Believe in Love,  over and over.

It's the little things in life  -  lunch at Burger King, a Netflix movie in the middle of the afternoon, and shiny orange persimmons.
