"Pear Portrait"

Oil on 1/8" Gessoboard. Approx 6"x6" SOLD

I have been super busy lately. Yesterday was my daughter's first birthday party. We had about 60 people at our house. It was insanity, but overall a great party. All that and Lucy won't even remember it. I can't believe she is coming up on being one. Time is really flying by. Oh and Happy Mother's Day!!!

Happy belated birthday to your daughter Lucy, Mike!

"Pear Portrait" is expertly done!

You managed to take a deformed, rather ugly shaped pear and make it beautiful!

So much character to this piece of fruit!

Another "Naples Classic!"

Just spent a big chunk of time perusing your blog and website. Beautiful work! Such clarity! Lots of detail but not too much.

I'm inspired. Glad I found your work.
