Sunlit pears in pear bowl

Sunlit pears in pear bowl-  oil on canvas board, 50 x 50cm

This is the latest in the Anne’s kitchen series. My friend had a wonderful big painted bowl (blue painted with pears and raspberries) filled with fruit, this time pears.

      Thank you Annie! Those pears in that setting made me happy just looking at them, painting them was fun too.

  2. Beautiful. You’ve captured the light magnificently. What a welcoming kitchen

      Thanks, I love this comment because without having worded it that way myself, I guess that is what I was trying to capture, the light and the welcoming atmosphere.

    A very warm and extremely professional painting! The light and the welcoming atmosphere have been captured perfectly – I’d love to be in that sunlit kitchen right now (it’s very cloudy over here…).

    P.S. I think you’re constantly improving your skills. Your determination is working really well.

      Thank you so much Kristina. Sorry you are having cloudy weather, we’ve had a period of tropical sunny days, enough to erase all the chilly cloudy rainy weeks and weeks that preceded it.

      I’m working on an ambitious painting now, large, and complicated- a decorated fruit bowl filled with fruits very close to one another in shape and colour, with the full background of a very busy Persian carpet. It looks pretty mediocre at this stage, but hopefully it will pull into shape. I am so grateful for the luxury of being able to devote my time to pursuing this. The more I work, the more the discipline becomes a ‘practice’ like meditation or Tai chi- done for its own sake and teaching the practitioner simply by one’s commitment to showing up for it.
