FIGS from my TERRACE GARDEN

Every summer I grow FIGS on my terrace………

Today I picked 6 of my FIGS.

Then I arranged the FIGS in a dotty dish………

 

This was my sketch for the FIG layout.

Final sketch with a ball-point pen……..6 FIGS

Chose my color pallet for the FIGS.….31 colors in all……..


This is the final watercolor of my FIGS.

Then I pickled the FIGS.………..and will eat them tomorrow with a pork roast.

[My mother taught me how to pickle fruit when I was 10 years old].
