To fulfill Rain's prompt this week,
I'm posting every painting of fruit
I've ever done in the past quarter century.
But don't worry,
there's only five in total, LOL.
These were all done in watercolour alone,
or in watercolour and ink.

I'll have to say the 2019 piece is my fav.
Is it the shadowing? Is it the colors?
I have no idea. But that's my favorite.
Neat, nice, well done. I could frame lemons for my kitchen,
The Lemon Slice one is especially cheery!
Nice job, Debra. I think fruit is very hard to paint. I didn't realize you had painted for years. I keep thinking I should start painting again. xo Diana
Hmmmmmmm Debs dear...2019 is rather suggestive, is it not?!?!
I feel like I owe the Lad and Lumbersexual a call.
I'm partial to lemons...
@ NanaDiana -- Before i retired in 2018, I only dabbled occasionally in watercolours which is why my old stuff is particularly cringe-y. I only started systematically taking art classes when I retired 5 years ago. I find watercolours particularly challenging, LOL!
Your earliest is much better than I think you know! It's bold -- see early Georgia O'Keefe nudes -- and I really like it. Beginner mind, maybe? Anyway, that's a keeper.
Good morning, I Love your paintings!
I like all of those different styles.
You scared me! Well done Debra.
@ Boud -- Thanks for your kind words about that early attempt! I did "go for the gusto" with that one, didn't I? Hahahahaha!
Watercolor is damned difficult! I like your fruits, maybe the lemons best of all...
I noticed that you have gotten so much better over the years. The adage practice makes perfect is strong with this one, Grasshopper.
I think your best painting is the first apple/plum? from 1995 with its bold colours. The lemon slices are nice too in a stylized way. Either would make a beautiful greeting card!
Nicely done. I like the font on the apple. And the filled-in closed loops on the lemon font.
Some nice ones.
Thanks for dropping by my blog.
Wonderful fruit art creations ~
Wishing you good health, laughter and love in your days,

I love all of these. 2022 is beautifully brooding.
Were the 2019 and 2022 pieces for a class?
Lovely. Fruit would be really hard
I don’t think I’d attempt it Unless I got really good
@ Old Lurker -- Yes, each was done for a separate course.
I like thes watercolors
Do you happen to see the changes in your drawing styles over the years? These paintings do look full of energy and punchy colours and clear edges. Beautiful works
You do a great job with your paintings, Debra! Love these.
Nicely done, Debra. I am so jealous of people that can draw or paint. Just never had that in me. I don't know if you wanted to know but 2019 was my favorite.
These are all wonderful fruit pieces. It's also interesting to see how you style has changed over time. I hope you had a great Thursday! hugs-Erika
I do like 2022. Good lemons, and I'm not particularly fond of the fruit.
Amazing that you have something from 1995 which wasn't that long... Ago.... 🧓⏳
@ roentare -- Yes, I can see the progress from 1995 to 2022, which pleases me. Thanks for noticing too!
@ Adam -- Hahahahaha, yes, you young whippersnapper, I know I'm old! Were you even born in 1995? If you were, you'd only have been a toddler then at most, I bet!
Hello Debra, The lemons would make a great stained glass window.
...an apple a day keeps the doctor away. I love apples.
My favourite is the 2019 one, and the 1995 banana. The lemon slices could be an illustration in a magazine. Nice work!
I like the lemons best (but that is because I love lemons!) Good work!
The last jumped out at me because it's so different from the rest. You must have been in a whimsical mood at the time.
Nicely done, Debra, each and every one! Wishing you and your Rare One a great weekend!
My fave is the apple from way back in 1995. I like the sense of excitement and discovery of playing with watercolour paint.
It's a keeper, and it is nice to look at.
0.Bonus comment, because i think we need to rescue our marmot.
For years they have been digging the poor creature up and dressing him like a trump supporting pennsylvania version of a guinea pig. They do it for fun. Of course he sees his shadow.
If i had those jerks looming over me,i would see my shadow also too.
I like the festivity, but don't forget that our Punxatawney Phil still has teeth.
It is probably the only time we celebrate these creatures.
As someonen who can't draw or paint even a single circle, I am truly impressed with all your fruit. Simply beautiful art. Those lemon slices are out of this world.
All of your paintings are awesome, each different in how it reflects it's own reality ... but fruit is fruit, no matter how you paint it, right? Very nicely done, Debra ...
Andrea @ From the Sol
Very cool!!! Those lemon slices are pretty awesome Debra!! ♥
the lemon one made my mouth pucker so you did good there.
These are so great; your talents are endless Deb!
nicely painted fruit :)
The lemons piece especially is so cheerful!
