Apricots from Albufeira


Oil on canvas 18x24cm

Portugal's border is 20 minutes from where we live, and we drove an hour further to the beach town of Albufeira.  On the pathway down to the beach was an elderly woman with a fruit stand selling these delicious fruits.

    1. Thank you. I tend to gravitate toward blue and white pottery, fabric, etc. When I placed the bag of apricots on the tablecloth, the complementary colors just popped wonderfully and a picture idea was born.
