"Pearfect Company"

10"x8" oil on canvas

My husband was going to the grocer so I asked him to pick-up two red Bartlett pears. This is all he could find, Starkcrimsons. I'm very pleased with the finished piece. I didn't tone my canvas because I was anxious to start a new painting so it took many layers of paint. Lesson learned. So, now when I'm not feeling too creative I tone a few canvas' so this won't happen again.

"Hold On"

6"x4 1/2" oil on canvas board

A little trial of a dragonfly. It looks better in person, but that is usually the way paintings are. Might tweak later, but for now leaving him alone to just...hold on.
