Here is yet another Blue Willow piece. I usually spend the first few minutes working on these pieces wondering WHY am I doing this again??? Then I get into the quiet, meditative mode that comes when working on the intricate design and I know I will probably always love painting these dishes.

This one is watercolor on 140# Arches paper and measures 5.5″x5.5″ SOLD

I found these great bartletts when in Trader Joe’s the other day. During the summer it is hard to come by pears, even imported ones like these that look good enough to star in still lifes. So I was thrilled to find these. Here they are arranged on a shallow silver dish that reflects their rich colors like a mirror.
