#277 - Red Pear No.1


2.5"x 3.5"(ACEO) oil on artboard Sold
That greek dude said you can't step in the same river twice. Well I tried, or at least I tried to paint the same pear twice. Seriously though, the other morning I lined up two ACEO cards to see if I could paint two at the same time (of the same scene). So I put a brush in each hand, blindfolded myself, turned up the enya and started swingin! Ok, that's a lie (especially the Enya part). I'm just not that strong with the force yet, but I did alternate strokes between the two and almost made a twin. Almost, but not quite. I think that greek dude is right, you can't paint the same pear twice, which is probably a good thing.

Here is this one's almost twin which I'll post up in a few days.

Love those BIG BOlD strokes!
As usual, color is magnificent.
Sounds like a fun idea - the same pear twice.
Greek dude, huh - can we ever really do exactly the same thing twice?
Thanks for the post and the great pear!

I love the bold, luscious brushstokes that you use and oh yes, those colors. Wonderful.

Your paintings have such a nice feel about them. Obviously, the bold brushwork is part of it, but for me, your unique way of seeing color is what is so special.

Your pears are sooooo good! Love the play on colors and the minimal brushstrokes.
Really like your wine picture too! So soft and inviting.
