Every year, I get a box of these fat, ripe pears in the mail from a relative on the East Coast. I always save a few and take them with me to paint on Wednesday night. Before, I had always done them on canvas, but this time I experimented with slick, gessoed boards and I really liked the results. The paint slides around on the board, and it’s easy to push around with palette knives and these silicone color shapers, which a friend calls "paint pushers." This is really the first painting that I did in this style, but there have been many more since then. I’ll post more soon.
Why paint? Why sell them on eBay? Read about it here.
