It has been a while since I have done any Pears. The recent crop available for purchase has not been all that great. I'd get them home and they would become over ripe within 24 hours. In the end I'd have to cook them before I could get to paint them. These two have a looser stroke than I usually use, but I like the way they turned out. They're similar to the two apples I did this past winter. I hope you enjoy.
This painting is done on an 8"x 10" stretched canvas. If you are interested in purchasing this piece I can be contacted at;

I found these two small eggs that had been abandoned in one of my large flower pots. I usually bag these types of things and save them for my science class. They were really small and instead of the usual blue green color of a Robin's egg they were more whitish and speckled. From what I can tell they might be the eggs of a Chickadee. The more I walked past them today, I had this tug to paint them.
This is a small painting of what the nest might of looked like if mom had chosen a more suitable spot. This 5" x 5" original oil is done on stretched canvas. It will be shipped ready for faming. This piece may be purchased securely for only $40.00 + shipping.

I bought a new camera about six months ago and have not had time to really sit down and play with it. Well, today I finally managed to get a number of things figured out. I originally bought it for close ups of the miniature paintings I do, but used it today out in the yard. Wow, I had too much fun shooting close-ups of plants and their frequent visitors at this time of the year.
The other thing I had yet to work out was how to edit the RAW photos I was taking. Mission accomplished! I was blown away that I can actually see the pollen on the body of the bee. Zoom in on the photo. This sort of thing usually becomes tedious and I become frustrated, but today was time well spent.
