Tickly

These local peaches are ripening on the tree. They're a bit fuzzy but wonderfully flavorful. Their tart sweet flesh tickle my throat as I swallow. They are both beautiful AND tasty. Oh, I drew the flowers in previous posts (Pink on Orange), (Perfection) if you'd like to take a look.

P.S. I'm packing for my trip rather belatedly. I realize I must be seriously addicted to drawing because the first things that made it into my suitcase were my pens and pad. :).

You certainly are prolific! This is gorgeous!

I love peaches. One of my favorite memories of my mom is that she always bought me my first peach of the summer every year because she knew how much I loved peaches. This was her way of showing me how much she loved me. She is on my mind a lot right now....she will be gone 10 years Sept. 17th....one week after I begin my Monday night teaching job. She would be so proud of me and where I am today....but it makes me so very very sad that she is not here to celebrate with me...and give me the first peach of summer. Your painting reminds me of her sweetness.

Hi Kathleen, what wonderful memories of your mom. I believe people we love remain close to us and I have a feeling your mom is very very proud. It makes me feel great to know my painting played a small part in your rememberance of your mom. My thoughts are with you. :). PS congrats on your teaching job! So you start on the 10th?

The peaches are lovely, so fresh looking. But I really love your use of pink with the rabbit and the blue ink drawing of the man, both fantastic.
