Avocados – Karen Winters Daily Painting

January 11th, 2008

Avocado & Leaves – 5 x 7 oil

Avocados from our overburdened tree – guacamole coming soon! This was painted from life this morning with actual sunshine streaming in my studio window!

I’m feeling better – finally – things are looking up.

  3. You lucky duck having an avocado tree! I’ve never had one but we buy them at about $1.50 each to put on toast with salt and pepper.

  4. Wonderful job. I love the rich greens. I also like the red in the pit … it looks very nice with the green.

  5. I like your landscapes a lot and here you are with a wonderful stilllife, too. Looks good enough to eat…get out the salsa (by the way, I never knew avocados grew on trees…it’s amazing what one can learn on daily painters:)

  6. I really like the dark behind the avocados and how it gets gradually lighter moving down and to the right. The painting is very pleasing to look at and is well balanced. I have been only sketching and drawing the past few days, mostly because of a very busy schedule here. Paintings like this motivate me to go grab a canvas!

  7. Thank you everyone!
    Mmmm, avocado on toast, sounds divine.
    Rhonda, yes it was delicious – it gave its life for art, and then for guac!
    Rob, go for it, and be sure to post your work so we can see it!

  8. I love the avocado painting. I like the group paintout one too.
    My favorite album art of all time was an avocado on the front and back of a pearl jam album.
