This is the painting of a fruit that hates me.
I’m that lady at the grocery store who is half buying food and half eyeing up the vegetables and fruit to see if I want to turn any of them into paintings. A particularly ornate dragon fruit or romanesco broccoli can distract me completely.
One year I stumbled upon persimmons – I’d never heard of them, and the rich red-orange was intriguing.
“Oh I’ll take one of those,” I said to myself, “And then I’ll eat it after!”
Famous last words.
I thoroughly enjoyed painting its vibrant colour and fun leaves. When I was finished, I chopped it up for a post-painting treat.
Until 15 minutes later when the vicious stomach cramps started.
And that’s the story of how I discovered that I’m allergic to persimmons, which is apparently incredibly rare.
I still like this painting though.

May I suggest a companion to your Persimmon?
These two pieces would look fantastic with alongside this one.
