3 pear still life

8 x 10

Pears are sooooo much fun to paint, they have the odd little shapes--kind of bulging at the bottom or side and in a certain light they have all kinds of colors. Here are my three little superstars posing for me. The actual painting has more color to it--I need a photography class (in my spare time)!
Don't forget I'll be at The Gallery at 916 on November 1 from 10am to 5pm and November 2 from 1-5pm and look forward to seeing those of you that can come.
