Day 60

I fear this may be turning into an obsession
with pears...every time I see this pear from a
different angle I am moved to paint it...again.
The leaves are really what pulls me further
into this fascination...they curl; they tease; they whisper
'paint me...'

Here's a picture of all three paintings I have done
from the one pear...with the leaves...

If you would like to see more of my work,

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see

This series on pears is really wonderful Claire. And you can see how you love to paint the leaves!

Love your pears all three paintings, and the leaves are especially lovely all the different greens they look so crisp like the pears mmm they look good enough to eat!

Marie Theron said...

You do them so well and is an absolute expert on the painting of pears, Claire. As they give everyone such joy, just keep on doing them!

I love your pears, I posted something the other day, but I don't think it came thru. They are so sensual and shapely, I love the simple composition with the leaf. They look great!

Hellenne Vermillion said...

Love the pear series! The more you paint them, the more you see?

Dana Cooper said...

I love your pears and particularly the leaves Claire! The three make a nice 'set'...they would make great note cards too.
You should submit these to!!
