Cozy Pears


Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas. Approx 20"x20" SOLD

I am very pleased to announce that this painting will hang in the Susan Powell Fine Art Still Life Invitational from Mar 26 - May 2, 2010. It was a last minute addition but I am fortunate to be able to meet the deadline. Stay tuned for new work that will make its way to that gallery.

Wow, I love this one, both the pears and the cloth are beautifully real, with some magic added. The cloth looks like silk.
Best regards,
Carolina

These are beautiful Michael. I love the pears, their colours and how you can feel the bumpy firmness of their skin.

These are so impressive! I love the movement and the overall "class" of the piece. Just beautiful!

Caroline Bray Art said...

Great stuff! There's movement and lyricism in the painting...swirling cloth and slightly lumpy pears. I love it!

As already noted "Cozy Pears" is both delicate and beautiful. But there is even more - solidity and strength

The larger image reveals brushstrokes applied with quiet confidence.

This piece is terrific, no doubt it made it's way into the show. I would love to have it move into my gallery.
I happen to have an affinity to pears, I will refer to this while I'm continuing to improve my own work.
