Persimmons on blue striped cloth

Today I am trying to enter all the information necessary for my blog all by myself.  I have tried once and am now on the second try.  If this goes through it will be a miracle.
The painting that I have chosen to display today is of persimmons and a striped tablecloth, I chose the cloth for the color but also was attracted to all the stripes.  I thought it would be a challenge to have a very busy background but have it muted enough that it complemented the fruit.  I think I accomplished that.
Well I almost got this right, but now I have to figure how to eliminate the frame in PhotoShop and save the corrections.  Tune in next time......
