Fruit Stand

“Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.”
Vincent van Gogh

Fruit Stand – 4″ x 8″ Watercolor & Sharpie

I did this little painting for the WDE over at WetCanvas.  Lisilk provided the photos to paint from last weekend.  I was able to squeeze this one in before we went to Oklahoma City to spend some time with my mother-in-law.  It was a lot of fun!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  For the last seven years, we’ve been having dinner with our friends, Jerry & Teresa.  There is usually 30-40 people there and they serve dinner off the truck rack in Jerry’s shop.  Little bit of hillbilly heaven!  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

About Vincent van Gogh

The Dutch post-Impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh worked as an artist for only ten years, but he had a profound and lasting effect on the art world. He was born in 1853 in Zundert. He briefly became a minister but was dismissed for caring too much about his impoverished parishioners. His brother, Theo, was a close friend and supporter. He only sold one painting during his lifetime. He is known for his heavy brushstrokes and strong colors. He died in 1890 of suicide.

    Oh, this needs to be painted larger. It is so inviting, Beth. Shapes, format size, color and values. Good job!
