|"Pear on Cork"|
5 X 7
Please excuse the quality of my picture. I think my photo program got zapped by lightening so I am forced to use a free program while I decide if I am going to fork out money for a new photo program.
I went to my go-to still life item today. The first one was extremely tight and I didn't like it so I just let loose with this one. I like it much better. I have painted a LOT of pears! Here is one I painted about 12 years ago. It hangs in our living room. Back in those days I didn't have money for art materials so I "stole" a piece of plywood that my husband was using for a ramp up into the shed. Thankfully I have a little more money now for art supplies!
I think I am starting to feel some stress with everything that has to be done for the art show this week-end. I dreamed my "stress dream" last night. I was in college and only had one more test to take to complete a class which would finish my degree, but for every conceivable reason I just could not make myself take the test. I'll let all of you psychology buffs explain that one to me! I'm sure it represents something.
The good news is I have heard several of my painting friends enjoying sales lately so I am hopeful I will do well in my upcoming shows.
I hope you have time to do what you love today!
