Grapefruit and Rice Bowls

When I see grapefruit, I think of grandma McNeil and how she was forever on a diet! Carefully sectioned grapefruit was a breakfast staple, along side a perfectly poached egg.

The rice bowls under these grapefruit are older than me. Collected in the orient during the military years. Ours was an eclectic household, where nothing matched and no one noticed.

Still life with grapefruit and rice bowls

    Hi Peggy!
    I have been browsing your website for over an hour now. Your work is deeply engaging. Fun to travel to Scotland with you, hang out at the wharf, drive to Davenport, and attend a drawing class in the mountains.
    My favorite of your work is your still life paintings and the copper kettle. I think you should paint more copper things!!!
    Since your real name is Penny.
    Thanks for referring me to your website. It is cool.

      Thank you Christine. So far I haven’t been able to part with the Copper Kettle. It’s hanging in my living room.

      I’ve been focusing on landscapes for the past two years. You reminded me that I did a still life of flowers a few months ago. I need to post that one up here. 🙂
