GARY'S PAPAYA


My blogger buddy, Gary Everest, sent some photos to me for reference after I painted one of his breakfast papayas.  So I have a few more photos of these beautiful fruits now.  And here is my first take on one - I changed the color of the bowl and juiced up the background a la Carol Carter :)

Not finished as the center needs a bit more ooph and the spoon needs to be painted.  

Hope you like it so far, Gary!  
And thanks for the photos :)

Good Morning Rhonda,
Like it? How 'bout love it! :) It's almost as good as waking up to the real thing!
I could go on and on, but it really is morning here and I have an appointment with the real deal.
Great job, Rhonda. It looks good enough to eat!!
Have a nice evening.
Sincerely,
Gary.

You are really mastering the ability to paint loose, Rhonda. This looks like an awesome start!

RH Carpenter said...

Thanks so much, Sharon, Debbie, Vandy and Lisa!!

Gary, so happy you are happy with this one - look for an email from me about these.

Thanks, Diana and Sherry (Sherry, every time I put brush to paper, it's a learning experience and I'm always learning something!)

Hi Rhonda, I don't know if my comment went through. I can't read the moderation words and numbers.

GRRRRRR!

I said I really like your painting. I love the juicy colors.

RH Carpenter said...

It came through just fine, Carol, and thanks :) Sorry, I didn't get it accepted right away (been out looking at artwork and having a nice lunch, plus walking in a state park for a while - a nice day!).

Beautiful watercolor Rhonda, the colors are especially nice.

RH Carpenter said...

Thanks so much, Caroline. I was going for lush, pure colors.
