This week's theme: The Summer Fruits

When you start listing all the good things about summer so many things come to mind. There are vacations, sleeping late, hot days spent swimming in cold water, long days, and as marvelous as those things are, one of my favorites is the wonderful, fresh fruit that can be found at farmer's markets, produce stands and in many backyards.

Art: PEACHES BATIK I by Artist Marcia Baldwin
Peaches Batik I is an original batik on paper by M Baldwin, c2006. Original is SOLD and in a private collection. I live in Northwest Louisiana and near a small town of Ruston, La. The town is known for the Ruston Peach Festival, held each year during the summer months. I was honored to be the Artist in Residence in the year of 1996, where my art was captured on fine art prints, signed and dated by me at a signing party and then distributed for sale to raise money for non profit organizations in the area. I have always thought of that honor each time I bite down on a Louisiana Peach from Ruston, the home of my University, La. Tech University. I received my BFA there in 1974. Peaches will forever be a favorite food of mine. Here I completed this painting using watercolor and a batik technique on bristol board paper, all the while remembering that sweet time in my life.... full of Ruston La. Peaches. It was a yummy year. ~ To Enjoy a Fresh Ruston Peach, SIMPLY Rinse, Cut, and EAT.. no sugar needed, They are sweeter than Honey ! ~ Marcia, artist.
