Red Pears on Red Stripes
These are red Bartlett pears that I bought yesterday at the market. The color is amazing. They are almost the color of cordovan leather. Two of them have a touch of pale green on them.
I put them on a red striped tea towel that I picked up at Tuesday Morning to add to my hodge-podge collection of things to paint. This was my first attempt to paint stripes.
I really enjoyed painting this. None of that kicking myself around the room feeling. I am slowing letting go of the feeling that every daily painting needs to be a finished painting. Trying to relax and enjoy the journey.
