sophie painting in limbo and "...grapefruit..." nearly done

as predicted i haven't had much time to paint but i have put some touches here and there on the painting of joan with a far away , pissed off look in her eye when she discovered that the self-serve citrus fruit stand had closed up early....."no grapefruit for you." borrego springs has a number of citrus groves along its north east border that sell fruit at a number of stands where you put your $2.50 in a box and take your 10# of fruit......grapefruit, oranges, lemons....whatever. we were out of luck that day. here is the painting as of this morning.


  1. Bob, awesome! I especially like how you handled the spots of sunlight hitting her face and clothing. One of my favoirtes of yours so far!

  2. thanks so much, dena. the look and the light were what drew me to this in the first place.
