My favorite subject is the still life, especially studies of fruit. I've been away from my studio way too long so I decided to do a couple small studies of a pear. I find myself returning to fruit studies when I feel a bit rusty and need to get my creative juices flowing

  1. Your pears are wonderful.... I love these 'warm -up' exercises. Makes me wonder what you have planned.

  2. Delightful pears, must have cheered you up after your plein aire excursion. I have had similar failures outdoors can't seem to paint a successful painting there.

  3. Thanks Sheila, I'm not planning much other than working on my skills, a life long project.

    Thanks Diana, After suffering from a bad allergic reaction to a tick bite, I decided painting indoors is much safer for me and more productive. I do really admire those who can weather the elements and produce a decent piece of art though.
