Perdy Pear

"Red Pear"
6" x 7" acrylic and collage on canvas
available in my Etsy Shop

Just finished this perdy pear last night. There's an abundance of lovely little pears in the stores right now...so many different colors and shapes. Uh oh...I feel a pear painting frenzy coming on!
Hey Ro...I used yet another one of your incredible papers in this one. I love them!

And when you have a moment...pop on over to Michele Maule's blog. Besides the fact that she just got a new Boston Terrier puppy (cutie pie!)...she's an amazing Artist. Her mixed media paintings incorporating graphite, paint, handmade gesso, collage and wax are just beautiful. Really nice work, Michele!

I love your pear. I do some similarly themed stuff in my business. I love the way painted fruit can brighten a room. Just found your site. Looks like you've got a lot of great stuff here. Look forward to coming here more often.

Hey Abby!
Thought I pop in to say hello, and I saw my painting! Thanks! I love your pear, and I really like what's going on with your abstract work.

What a delightful pear! It is enough to make me want to paint a still life, something I don't remember ever doing. (My daughter suggests it all the time.)

Hi Linda! What a beautiful and happy looking pear! The colors in this are wonderfully rich and luscious. I have two of these red pears on my butcher block right now -- I got some Brie cheese to accompany them. Thanks for the link to Michele's blog -- she's got a fantastic style.
