Peach Tart

Summer. Nothing says it like fresh peaches. The best are tangy and sweet-and juicy. Keeping color interesting and real, not too sweet, is always a challenge when painting something that is by nature "sweet". This is where poetic mystery in color comes in. If a painter is not painting a little something that is outside the frame, for me at least, the painting does not hold my interest. Setting up a resonance that includes the response, that is the critical aim. So the chef tickled my palette on this one and I responded with bright hope and good wishes for an abundant summer for all.
