The only thing about painting with a glossy black background is it is a bear to photograph. Suffice it to say I'll get a better shot and substitute it!
These Asian Pears were SO beautiful I bought a bag full. Examining each one for a graceful silhouette, I'm sure I looked a bit (to say the least) odd at the market, holding each huge pear at arm's length and squinting at them, putting some aside, some in the bag right away. Some were more golden orangey and some more yellowy-green. FULL of personality.
At the end of this painting session my dear husband said "Are you going to leave it like that?" "Like WHAT?" I (kind of) nicely asked. "Well, all stroke-y..." he said. And I must have looked at him like a grizzly, because he said "Of course you are! They look great. I was just asking..."
You gotta love those husband and the fun questions they ask about our paintings. The strokyness is great.ReplyDelete
I love the stroki--ness. Great color!ReplyDelete
I love the pears against the dark background. Very nice!ReplyDelete
Love this, Kelley!!! I love pear paintings and this one is quite bold. I know how hard it is to photograph dark paintings and shiny black backgrounds. Also familiar with the husband comments. Too funny! At least he figured it out in one glance!ReplyDelete
Love the texture - great job, Kelley. Hope you are well!ReplyDelete

I am ALWAYS looking strangely and long at produce in the grocery store. I'm sure I'm perceived as pretty weird.
