Wow, this is beautiful, David! I'm impressed! This looks good enough to eat. :) I love gessoboard/masonite. Do you use the cradled kind or the flat?

Jen -- thanks so much -- glad you could drop by!

I've been using the 1/8 inch thick kind, which I like a lot. It's super solid, has a great feel, and clips to my paint box nicely :-)

Hi David. Your work is lovely. Soft, simple and appetizing!!! You are inspiring me to start painting again. I love Jen's blog. It's now one of my "favorites". Very funny. Hope your summer is going well. It looks like it's been very productive!

Thanks for adding me to your links David. This Nectarine is my current favorite. I have many question that I'll trickle to you over time. The first being: How can you paint by porchlight in New England with the black flies and Midgees? (I've done some summers in Freedom NH and spent a winter in Boxford/Topsfield Mass.)

Steven -- my pleasure. I've really been enjoying the conversations over on your blogs, and the latest series at the Fourth Wall. . . . LOL -- our front porch is a little harry, to be sure -- I'm constantly bombarded with moths of every shape and size which bounce off my paint box . . . or land on the back of my neck (shutter). The back porch is much nicer. It has shuttered glass windows and screens to let the breeze in. I was serenaded by a cicada for about an hour the other night who'd landed on the screen to see what was going on.

SIL, I think you should now paint a grasshopper.

The nectarine is superb :>)

Love, MIL

Hello David, I just found your site and I must say that I like your work. But out of all of them this nectarine takes the number one spot. This little painting is a gem! Take care and happy painting!

Luis -- thanks for your comments -- it means much, coming from a fellow artist. I'm fond of the nectarine, too. It's amazing how these things work . . . it really didn't come together until the last minute of my session.
