More Pears! Day 7

More Pears

6x8in oil on canvas panel  125.

Artist Note
It appears I am working on a
run of pears at the moment.
They are fun, but it
happened all on its own and I cannot
call it a series because I usually 
plan for those.
I have authorized my
 left hand to slap the brush 
right out of my right 
hand if it tries to paint another pear
for at least a week!
Time to do something else

Happy News
I NEVER win anything so imagine my
delight at winning a beautiful 
sunflower painting by Sharon l Graves.
Check out the painting at the
River Run Gallery

I have been visiting Sharon's blog for quite a 
while now and she always has interesting 
information along with her 
lovely artwork.
You can also scroll down to the previous
post where she demonstrates my 
useful correcting with glass hint.


  1. Oh dear! I painted pears today and also have day 8 and 9 as pear paintings. Like you I love the shape and colors however I don't get the beautiful jewel tones you have. Also have an onion painting coming up. I'm trying to stay at least three to four days out because life happens.

  2. Bonjour chère Julie,

    Je suis séduite par vos poires. Elles ont une allures princières avec toutes les belles couleurs que vous avez harmonieusement utilisées.
    Une très belle composition. Quelle est la variété de poire ?... Des Comices ?...

    Gros bisous ♡
