100 Paintings in 100 Days Challenge
'Inspirations from a Back Yard'

'Triple Sec'
Oil on Canvas
4 x 8

Day 95

My pear obsession continues, especially with these
beautiful seckel pears.  I really like their compact
forms, wonderful shapes and rich colors.  I placed
these in my black box with one light source to
make the colors really pop - especially the
reflected light.  I don't think I could ever get
bored with painting these little gems.

If you would like to see more of my work,
please visit my website or my blog. If you are
interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see
here on this blog, please contact me.

The glow that you achieved is fabulous, the size makes it a special linear composition!

So rich and voluptuous, if one can say that about pears!

Thank you Dana! I have three little cayennes waiting for me to paint them tomorrow :)

Padmaja, I have never painted on this particular 4 x 8 format, and I was pleased with the way the pears fit within. Thank you so much for your encouraging comments!
