When I was growing up, these were called Chinese Apples! There is something magical about pomegranates...especially when you mix their juice in a cocktail! Painted this on my ipad using the oil painting brush. L

Another wonderful painting Lindae! This makes me think of a summer picnic.

Lindae, these are very appealling. They remind me of my father who lived in St. Orens de Gameville, France. He had a neighbor across the street who had a pomegranate bush growing in the yard.

Thank you Aunt Betsy and Bobbi!

Bobbi, I had no idea that poms grow on a bush! Glad this painting stirred a good memory for you!

Beautifully painted. Love the contrasting stripes.

Figuring out and painting the stripes, with all the folds and shadows, was really the most fun! Thanks for commenting on them! L

Simply gorgeous!!!!!

The pomegranate has historically been known as a symbol of fertility. And I see in the one that's opened all these little paintings just waiting to be born.

Very well presented. A subtle and detailed image. Brava!

From martinis to yogurt, poms make everything just a bit better! Thanks for your comment. L

You chose, as a subject of this exquisite painting of yours, a most symbolic and meaningful fruit so frequently used in quite a few great classical paintings. Excellent artpiece.
