"Inside Job" --- SOLD

I used to think green and orange could never go together, but I've changed my mind. Perhaps it's a little odd ... but what the heck - I like odd.

You are amazing. Persimmons are such a beautiful fruit and you show them off so well. Never mind the green, I would have never thought to paint that beautiful gold background. I've attempted several 6x8 persimmon paintings and none of them were keepers. Congrats on another great painting.

I love it. Persimmons have a reddish quality and the green is a dynamic way of setting them off. Beautiful!

Carol... gorgeous!!! As you know, this new-leaf color of green is my favorite, but I also love how you managed to create some "tension" by housing the one persimmon in a tiny, form-fitting cup (makes it sound like a bra, ha!).

Seriously, the colors are so vivid and the angle is odd and interesting. Great job. : )

I really like all of the work that you have done! I think the colors are great!
