I love working with pastels but find the cost of preparing a lot of pieces for a show very expensive. Wanting to find an alternative I came up with my glazed pastel method. I mount the paper to a panel … Continue reading

Today’s artwork is (was – read below!) a 12 x 9 pastel piece. Yes, more pears but you already know about my love affair (obsession) with pears. This is the third time I’ve tried to make a good painting using this composition but I’ll just call the first two times practice pieces since they are hidden away in the dark depths of a drawer somewhere never to see daylight again for a very long time. All artists have those types of pieces where it just doesn’t look right to us… If they say they don’t then they aren’t very prolific or are just too perfect… LOL
This piece will be added to Etsy for sale and also to Fine Art America for prints. Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!
***Ok, when I uploaded this picture it looks square so I cropped the photo I took and have decided it’s a much stronger piece cropped to be 9 x 9 square, so what do you think? Would love some feedback from you all on if you like it 12 x 9 or 9 x 9… at least before I get out the scissors!
Today’s painting is of some luscious red summer cherries (even at $8,99 a pound!!) and a sweet smelling peach. I’m glad this painting is finished because those cherries look like afternoon tea to me!
This painting is oil on panel and measures 7 x 5 inches.
You can bid on this painting at the Daily Paintworks!
I am of course scrambling to complete some more works for my July 1st show in Ohio. While working on a large 24 x 30 painting featuring lemons and lavender, I completed this smaller painting using the same set up … Continue reading
