Fresh Figs

6x6 oil on linen still life of figs and my favorite little pot.  There is a fresh air market near my home that is open every Thursday.  I am hooked on the marvelous tastes of the fresh produce.  They actually let you taste the different fruits before you buy.  This week I tried their figs.  I ate so many I felt sick.  Fresh and tasty with a seedy crunch. 
But...Before I ate them I painted them with this little hand thrown pot.  I really enjoy these colors together.

Beautiful job. Try drizzling honey on your sliced figs.

Just love this Dori! Beautiful composition and coloring - especially the figs with wonderful hints of reds and blues.
