Another Page and a Pear

I am trying to do a quickie journal spread (15 minutes or less) everyday. Actually I think it probably takes longer sometimes but I don't watch the clock... so who knows--it could be an hour. But it is fun. And below is my latest oil pear. This is a 5 x 7 but my goal is--GO BIG! Yikes!!!
This painting is inspired from a reference image from an artist named Toni Grote. Her style is not as chunky but still wonderful. I like to put my spin on these paintings by using some punchanella which works just find with the oils. As you know I love pears!!!

Wow Martha, that pear is wonderful! I like this style a lot and the oils in this method look a lot like acrylic. This work is awesome!

Great layout and great pear. I wonder if I could adapt a daily 15 minute art session into quilted art. HMMM.
