Persimmons & Chestnuts -sold

oil on canvas panel 6x6 inches

On Sunday we visited Oak Glen and came home with apples, cider and these chestnuts. Being unfamiliar with chestnuts, I asked the sales girl at Los Rios Rancho how you roast them. She quickly blurted: "Ya roast 'em over an open fire". I know the song, yeah. But how? So she said to look it up on the internet. Mainly I wanted to paint the shiny reddish brown beauties. My new favorite color, transparent red oxide worked well. Does anybody know if they keep, or should I get that open fire going soon?

  1. Such a gorgeous piece. All the colors work so beautifully together! The chestnut and persimmon colors are so nice against the green.
