Chubby Pear

























This time of year always feels like a hibernation period just when
I need to be energetic about a new year. I wanted to see if I would
paint a single object differently after working on multiple-object
paintings. I saw Carol Marine's latest post this morning and am
amazed at how beautifully she fits 5 apples into such a small area.
Another thing to add to my "to try" list.

Lost edge on the right side....perfection! Love the bits of orange showing up here and there.
Love this!

Your edges are masterful. How do you do that? I love the lumpy bottom of the pear. Very natural. Pears are not easy to do well. This is beautiful.

Gorgeous and dynamic. Color shifts and brushwork are so good:) Love the shadow side but the lost edge on the right is amazingly done. Yay for chubby pears!
