Pears want to be "IN' like the Tomatoes

I actually began this painting last year and set it aside unfinished. I often paint over old paintings but yesterday decided to 'Doctor' this old one up using a palette knife and changing the composition. It came alive for me. Now many other freshly harvested local vegetables and fruits are begging to be painted next! Not a problem. Palette knife has a mind of it's own.


  1. Wonderful colors! Painting with a palette knife is fun. You've inspired me to pull out some old paintings and paint over them or even continue where I stopped with a palette knife.

  2. Beautiful! What size is it, Page? It looks like you painted it outdoors in the sunlight!

  3. This piece is 20x20....painted in the cool comfort of my beautiful studio


Love hearing from you. Thanks
