Fruit sketches by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia

I, Gloria Poole, residing in Missouri but born in the state of Georgia, drew, painted, signed, photographed, uploaded all five of these sketches of fruit that I created at different times, to this blog. The first sketch I named "Lemon Tree" and I created it yesterday; and it is acylics on paper 8 x11. I read years ago that most famous artists painted fruit and still lifes [ a genre] at some point in time. I am not fond of that genre of art but I decided I should learn to draw and paint it. So these 5 sketches are some of those efforts. I have also painted other still lifes and inanimate objects and may display those at another time. I had much trouble photographing this for some reason. I tried about 10 times! So here is the best photo of the bunch of the actual on paper and acrylics sketch I created yesterday.

The second sketch is pears fruit that I created on 17 May 2014 and it is posted on another blog of mine. It is waterclors and acrylic in what is called "mixed media' on paper.

. The third sketch is a gigantic strawberry that is 14 x 17 on paper and acrylics and I created it on 2 May 2014 and it is posted on other blogs also. This is the first time I put all sketches of fruit that I created in one post.

/This fourth sketch is hands displaying blueberries and I created it this year also and it is watercolors on paper.

This fifth sketch is green apples and I drew and painted it some time before and I think I also posted it to my blog and one other blog .

This sixth sketch is one I created of a Georgia peach in year 2013 and it is on paper also, and posted to another blog of mine. I logged back in to add it so the 'fruit series" is complete of all fruit sketches I have created .
