Back to Pears

I have been feeling some ups and downs about painting lately. I guess it's just part of the art journey. I felt confident that if I could just fine something I wanted to paint then I could paint it but just finding it was a big block for me. I am not good at setting up still lifes or taking great pictures that I can paint. But I decided that I would take Jeff Manoney's advice (he's a fabulous painter)
and go back to basics---paint a pair. When things seems to be falling apart paint a pair.
Good advice.

Well, the pears are lovely and simple and appealing!

Setting up a still life is difficult for me as well. I never could really arrange flowers in real life, and it carries over into a painting. :(

Your pairs are looking delicious. You always seems to get the light and shadow just right.

Your pears are lovely Martha, you did a great job. It's hard to be creative 24/7, there will always be ups and downs. Hang in there.

Still life is my favourite...but portraits might be a close second.

Hang in there Martha! Those up and downs are part of the ride, like road signs that let you know you're still truckin. May we all find refuge and comfort in the simplicity of the pear. :)
Very nice!! I am loving the colors and texture. the edge treatment is cool too!
