Plums in Snow

Plums in Snow

(16″ x 20″ framed)

Japanese Ogura lace paper is such a gorgeous texture to work with, and it was perfect for surrounding these ripe plums, as if nestled in snow. Plums in the supermarket don’t get much love. They’re dumped into a bin, hard to the touch, a scuffed-up, ashen purple. But these plums have been picked right off the tree, their infinite shades of blue-violet imparting a subtle glow.

The cool, tranquil hues of this painting are just what you need to calm your mind and meditate on the simple beauty around us.
