Certificate Of Authenticity provided with every original painting.

I titled this painting "Love That Plum" because I love this plum. I think it is the best plum I've ever painted and one of my favorite fruits to eat. We are in 'plum' season again and I am really hoping to hit the jackpot and find one with a leaf still attached. Maybe I'll get lucky...they are difficult to come by.

The background for this painting is a swatch of fabric I found at a local fabric shop. 

A bit of plum knowledge here...Did you know that plums may have been one of the first fruits domesticated by humans? Three of the most abundant cultivars are found only around human settlements and not in the wild. Plum remains have been found in Neolithic age archaeological sites along with olives, grapes and figs...
