You may know that I love painting pears. The way the light wraps around their unique shape. I love it. I thought this one especially interested on its side.

I like the drama here. I think it does indeed create interest, and kind of have a narrative when the pear is on its side. Nice work, great subtle highlights.

I do like to see you paint pears. I have loved everyone of them. Do you think pears are interesting to paint because they have such a humanly (a word?) shape?

I see that most of your paintings has the "round" topic to it. I'm not a professional painter but I've been meaning to be one. Unsuccessful though.. :(

Anyway, does this blog make you money? Learn how to start making money through your blog. Hope you'll succeed in the blogging world. If you do, please don't forget to remember me. :)
