I’ve been painting pears, looking at pears, really getting to know them. I can’t even begin to explain it. But pears have occupied my painterly efforts lately and it has been enjoyable having them in the studio. I look at them in the light, I look at the shadows they make, I stand them up, I lay them down. Occasionally I even eat one.
With these two painted images, above, please be impressed (if only just a little) that I have their faint shadow painted on the background. Go ahead, scroll back up and look at those nice shadows! Yes, I’ve probably obsessed just a bit about pears.
Painting the backgrounds has been just as entertaining as the pears, themselves. We’ll see how much farther this goes after a couple more days.
Warmer weather is beginning to hit giving us plenty of sunshine with all things blooming in wild abandon. Still a few snow flurries in the mountains and still some snow hanging around up there, but I’m already thinking ahead to when the kayaks come out. Hope your day includes a spring breeze, some sunshine, and perhaps even a pear.
Thanks for stopping by . . .
