Glorious Figs!

figpainting….Kadota, Everbearing, Brown Turkey, Nero….Flanders, Black Mission, Pingo del Mel, Lee’s Perpetual….and the names continue for that lovely fruit, the fig. Our trees and our neighbor’s laden branches hanging over our fence are producing lovely figs this year. Although I don’t know the specific name of these Greek fig trees, I researched and discovered a myriad of fig names fit for a long poem. Instead of writing a poem, I gathered some fig leaves and used them as stamps on a white canvas. I then wrote every name for figs I’d discovered on the canvas to remind me of figs in Halkidiki.figpainting3
