Pomegranate Study – Still Life by Karen Winters

Pomegranate Study
8 x 10 oil on linen panel (commission)

This pomegranate painting, a larger version of an earlier small study, was painted for a client who was looking for something bright and juicy for her dining room. I was happy to paint this larger one. Maybe one day I’ll paint it even larger still.

All of the rain clouds have left, now, revealing greening grasses and wondrous blue skies. The 10 day forecast doesn’t show precipitation, although our Sierra range could certainly use some more to fatten up the snow pack. I don’t mind rain, but I do like a few days of sunshine to break up the gray.

Maybe I’ll fit some plein air days in this weekend.

    Terrific! I’ve always wanted to paint an open pomegranate, but haven’t gotten to it yet! (only buy them in fall to augment squash soup with leftovers in salads). This painting is a wonderful portrait !

    I love everything about this painting! The composition, the color, the looseness of it. The two seeds on the left! Bravo!

    Hi Karen,

    I am an art consultant in Seattle and have a client requesting a pomegranate piece.

    If you are interested in painting another like this with some of their ideas incorporated please let me know. You can email me or call me to discuss.
