Three Plums On Art

Listening to David Sedaris reading "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim" while painting this.
This still life was inspired by Julian Merrow-Smith and his recent "Plums with blue-green background," painting which in turn reminded me of a short poem by William Carlos Williams:

This Is Just To Say
by William Carlos Williams

I have eaten 
the plums 
that were in 
the icebox
and which 
you were probably 
for breakfast 
Forgive me 
they were delicious 
so sweet 
and so cold

This painting is about 5.5 x 7.5 inches and is acrylic on gessoed mat board, protected in a cream colored mat. The text above is handwritten on the back of the painting, which is also signed and dated.
