Harry and David Pears

Just as I was looking for some subject matter to paint, here comes Lee Brown from his " A Day Not Wasted" Blog and posted this masterful still life photo of 3 Harry and David Pears. The Pears are grown in Medford, Oregon, my home State, so one more reason to paint them.

Walk in the Park, Central Park

Here is my submission for the " A Day Not Wasted Blog" put on by Lee Brown. Last time I took a trip to NYC, and after visiting the Metropolitan, my wife and I visited Central Park and walked under the same viaducts and admired the Art Nouveau streetlamps, Lee's photo reference brought back memories. This oil painting is on a 16 by 20 canvas.


Here I am posting a little practice piece, a still life, with a Nautilus and a peeled Tangerine on a green marble counter, painted with oil on a 14 by 11 canvas panel.
