Persimmons are in the grocery store right now. I've always loved the subtle, beautiful colors of them; this is my first time painting one.

Lisa Towers, I hope you don't mind my quoting you here (and your persimmons painting is gorgeous), but this is too funny. You all must read the most hilarious art blog in the world, that of Bill Jones and Lisa Towers (see the link On Painting). Lisa's words: "When I was a kid, growing up in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, one of the worst dares you could make to another kid was to take a bite out of an unripe persimmon. Ain't a weed smokin' rastafarian on earth that knows cotton mouth worse than that."
