Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

"Reflections on a Pear" Daily Painting

Original oil, 5"x5" unframed.
Some red and green for you!

Pears in the store now are quite good. We've brought them home to enjoy, and today I realized there was only one left. I wanted to paint one before they all got eaten!

So I took a break from the commissions I'm finishing to paint this green pear on the scarlet background. The bright colors were very fun to work with and a nice departure from the charcoal portrait I'm finishing up for a client.

Lovely painting if somewhat short on imagination, I mean red and green? However, I guess that does tie into the Christmas colors.

Anyway, well painted as always.

Merry Christmas!!!!

Well Bill... yes I guess it is fairly predictable with the red and green for Christmas. It was fun though. Glad you like it.

Merry Christmas to you too!
