Three Persimmons on White

This is the last of the persimmon paintings - they finally gave up the ghost.  This is  my favorite; I especially like the simple strokes of the leaf of the shadowed persimmon.  And I like the contrast between the warm light-struck foreground and the cool shadows.  I am always amazed at how long it takes to make something "simple," and how deliberate your strokes have to be to be "loose"
