8''x8'', oil on gessoboard - SOLD

My Victoria plum tree has been groaning under the weight of a massive crop this year – so much so that the branches have had to be propped all summer.

Having left it extremely late to pick them, I had to do battle with the wasps that had moved in big time.  A couple of stings on the backside later  and I’ve a freezer full once more.  Sometime in the middle of November, the offspring  start begging me to ”drop the plum crumble habit” – but for now, they’re enjoying it.   Apples next…………….aww Mum!
