The bosc pears that have been around for a good while now are ready to retire, possibly even to the compost heap. But before they do here they are in one last pose with a couple of aspiring extras. SOLDboscsandbulbs

August 10th? My last post? I have to do better than that. I’ve been doing lots of little pieces and just forget to post them. This one was a bit more effort and I love this bowl, especially with the rich reds of the pears against the gold rim. This one is acrylic on canvas, 10″x8″. It is available for purchase directly from me. So if you are interested, send me an email (check my contact page).newimageredprscom starting September 14th.

This painting went along swimmingly until I got to the lace. Boy, what on earth was I thinking????? The pears, the glass bowl, all were loads of fun. Then I got to the lace and suddenly cleaning the attic seemed like a good idea. Moving firewood around, ah yes the world is full of alternate activities to the desperate. It is crocheted lace and probably more work to paint than it was to crochet, but since I don’t crochet, what do I know? Finally I could no longer stand its nagging and accusatory looks whenever I was in the studio. So it’s done! It is 20″x16″ and acrylic on canvas. SOLD

I’ve been working on this one for a few days now, and it seems to be done. These are some of the oranges I photographed over a month ago when they were fresh off the tree. This piece is a watercolor on 140# Arches paper, 10 1/2″x14″
