mercy mercy me

I was excited to buy peaches with the leaves intact last week and then I ran out of time to paint them. I found time to work out this one piece.  I really struggled with this painting and almost scrubbed it out two or three times. I then proceeded to drop it wet side down two different times when I was photographing it.   As I was posting this I happened to be listening to Marvin Gaye's  song, "mercy mercy me".  I feel that is quite appropriate for this painting.  It is painted on an 11 x 14" linen panel.


  1. Hahaha! I feel your pain! Your painting doesn't look any worse for the wear, though. It's really beautiful!!

  2. Oh I do love Marvin Gaye! And this painting is awesome, Carol! Truly a beauty!
