That's funny Virginia. Thanks for stopping by my blog.This painting has a classical look. Very nice colors.
Love the golden glow of this painting with the green shadows and touches of red in the pears. It has a gilded look. And I love what a pear will never say! Very funny! Thanks for visiting and your supportive comments. Happy painting!
Pears are indeed, very forgiving. All round soft edges. Like women. I think of them as having bustles, which is the antithesis of what we women want currently. Ironic? Beautiful light and color . . . light dominant value . . . hey, you're not value-dominant dyslexic!
Pears are one of my favorite subjects. I haven't painted any in a long time. You've provided a nice, colorful reminder. :)
Beau trio Virginia pour ces poires aux couleurs jaunes virant aux ors...Bisous et merci pour votre gentil commentaire... A bientôt,
Thank YOU, Mary. I really enjoy looking at your paintings. You have a loose brush stroke that I'd really like to emulate.
Claire, your paintings of fruit are awesome. Thank you!
Linda, thank you for visiting! You are one of the most supportive bloggers around. I enjoy your comments and your work.
Lorraine, I was just thinking that pears are the only fruit that we assign personality to. Apples just aren't that endearing. I'm not dyslexic, but I am so detail oriented! I just haven't been able to loosen up yet like you. Actually, for me this was a pretty loose painting. Waaah!
Alison, thank you for the kind words. Your paintings are very etherial and beautiful.
Beautiful pears. Golden with a soft brightness. I like the colors and pattern in the wall behind them too.
Hi Virginia, Thanks for your visit and comment. You are so encouraging! And you do great pears!
Nice one Mom! BTW, I think they have cute butts.
Pears are very fun...you should submit it to pearathon.com!
Caladh, thank you for your comments. You are always so supportive. I really appreciate it.
These are nicely done, Virginia! I like the colors and the use of the green shadow!!
Thanks, Dana. I never heard of pearathon.com but I went there and saw your painting. Very nice. And what a fun site!
Thanks, Linda, I liked that shadow, too.
Very funny, Virginia! Great painting! Your transition between the golden greens, golds and orange/red are great and your colors glow! You've made these pears look fabulous:)
Yes, all that is wonderful, and I like how you controlled the viewer's 'journey' through the painting with the composition, and stems!
Thank you, Carrie and Kelley. I didn't even know I did all that!
