How this painting will look framed:

Persimmon and Red Grapes was a challenge to paint. I had two competing objects-the persimmon and the grapes. I had to keep the persimmon a cool orange and yet make it shimmer. I wanted it to be the focal point of the painting. To downplay the grapes, I kept the grapes as a bunch and highlighted specific ones to lead the viewer's eye toward the persimmon. Can you connect the dots that lead to the persimmon?
