Fruit Squares: Fruit Cocktail
(16" x 16", oil on canvas)

While my other "Fruit Squares" paintings are generally 12", I felt the riot of colours here demanded a slightly larger canvas. I really had fun with this one, recalling my days as a child when "Fruit Cocktail" was often on the dessert menu (particularly the day before grocery day when the pantry pickings were slim). Then it was from a can, an uninspiring mix of soggy peaches, tasteless grapes and plastic maraschinos. Lucky for me, times have changed and fresh fruit is now readily available year-round.
