Mango, 6x8 Oil on Canvas Board

I painted a still life for a change. I bought this mango and it was so beautiful I had to paint it. I could practically see it ripen as I painted; it seemed to grow more freckles under the hot light. Mangoes are the ultimate tropical fruit. Even MacDonald's has discovered them. Ever notice how closely related are art and food? It's all about presentation, isn't it?
