Pear on Wood Box

{7" x 5" (17.8 x 12.7 cm) – oil on linen panel}
Unframed painting: $100.00


This little painting was completed over a few days. The first day was late on a bright and sunny afternoon, but I had to stop working on it because of other responsibilities {namely my little one}, then the next time I had a chance to get back to it, the day was dark and cloudy. So dark that it was hard to see, but I tried to finish it anyways because opportunities do not always afford time to paint....

Well the next day was a bright and sunny day, and I realized that I had botched a lot because of how dark the previous day had been. However, this turned out to be a gift in disguise, because I was able to add more layers of paint, some places were painted wet into wet, and other areas had paint scumbled across the top of previous layers of paint. So all these days working on this little painting afforded the time to effectively capture the weathered appearance of the old Phillips Digestive Cocoa wooden box that the pear was sitting on.

This painting would not be what it is, if it had been smooth sailing from start to finish…
