This Bartlett pear has been such a wonderful model,
but as lunch time approaches, this will become
the scene of its demise... I did enjoy the fact that
the red of the blush from the pear was reflected in the tip
of my bird's beak paring knife...


All of my paintings for this Challenge will be done in a 6 x 6 format,
and my main goal while painting from life
is to LOOSEN UP and USE MORE PAINT...
something which will only benefit my work.

If you would like to join this Challenge, or follow the
work of the participating artists, just visit her blog:

I really like the winter piece below, Claire. It is so beautiful! And the knife is just amazing with its evident expertise in its painting.

Pattie Wall said...

Oh Claire - I like this one - it so fits the title..with that red face and the reflection in that perfectly painted paring knife. Very clever! You have gleaned a lot of mileage from your local pears. They are so handsome!

Sherri Cassell said...

Love the pears! You do them so well. Cute title.

Pat Koscienski said...

Beautiful, Claire. Love the title!

Sue ChurchGrant said...

I love the rich colors of the pear. I especially love how they are reflected in the knife. The knife is painted so well that looks very sharp!

Darla McDowell said...

Oh, I love this, Claire! Your reflections are awesome! Beautiful painting!

Thank you, Maria. This was a fun piece to do!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thank you, Sherry - for your kind comments on this painting and also my previous entry!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thank you Pattie - the nice thing is that the pears can be eaten when I am done with them!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thanks so much, Sherri!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thank you, Pat - I thought it was appropriate with the red on the pear, and my wicked little paring knife!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thank you, Sue - that little knife IS sharp!
