'Seckel Pear With Leaf'

Day 92

I was so pleased to find this tiny seckel pear with
its little leaf still attached.  This pear is no taller than
one and a half inches, but it is packed with gorgeous,
rich color.  Even the dried leaf had some beautiful
dark golden green.  I was tempted to prop it up to
make the pear more upright - but it's own quirky
leaning stance was just more fun to paint.

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see

Claire this is just beautiful. So deceptively simple and rich. I just wanted to let you know that I have a new blog at I am deleting the old one, unfortunately. Is it possible for you to add a "subscribe" widget on your sidebar? That way I will always know if you have a new post. I can't follow as easily on WordPress as I could on Blogger otherwise.
