"Pear Pair"


















6 x 6 oil on canvas SOLD

The pears are so juicy and delicious right now. They are

the perfect fruit for practicing Still Life painting. Their
curvy shapes allow for so many different angles.
Goodness knows I need the practice so I'm going to try
to paint these several more times.

Very nice. I love the red hot and the light that gave the pears . The colors of pears contrast well with the lighter color background. I really like.
