Summer is… Fruit from the Farmers’ Market

We’re lucky to have year-round farmers’ markets in California, but in the summer, the market REALLY comes alive. It’s summer fruit that I really enjoy painting: the peaches and nectaries, strawberries and melons, all in big, colorful, messy piles on tables across the market.

Summer Fruit

And I love watching people carefully pick over and choose their vegetables. It’s something you never see at the grocery store. It can take quite a while to examine and choose every okra and eggplant, which works really well for me because it gives me time to sketch people before they move on.

And when I bring home bags and bags of stuff from the market? I sketch it :)
