I painted over successive evenings en plein air and posted the progress on my blog . It was a good painting challenge for myself and I finally got to painting the pomegranate shrub (tree!) that blooms with the incredibly beautiful vermillion-colored blossoms in early summer . . . everyone seems to have a story of eating pomegranates as a kid, their grandmother's tree or the different colored fruit they found at the farmer's market.
They're beautiful when in bloom and in fruit. Like pears, artists love to paint pomegranates . . .I know I do!
