Persimmon Season Begins

For me, persimmon season doesn’t start until Gay Kraeger says the fruit on her trees is ready to be sketched.

Here are two sketches from my visit to her wonderful orchard in the Santa Cruz mountains.

This next sketch is of her apple tree (with the green leaves and the sweetest apples) and the orange and yellow leaves and fruit of the persimmon tree just behind it. Hidden among the trees are Gay, her family of artists and Nina, all drawing and painting.

I came home with lots of persimmons, as always. Here are a bunch of little studies of this glorious orange fruit.

    You introduced me to persimmons last year. I am so excited to know that they are back in season. Your paintings are mouthwatering, reminding me of their tangy delicious taste. It may be awhile before they arrive on the shelves of grocery stores in Canada, but I am definitely on the lookout for them now!
