Pear Trio
Painting: Oil on gessoboard, framed

10"w X 8"h


I first began "painting" digital images on my cellphone a decade ago, inspired by David Hockney. Since then, I've worked in charcoal, pastel, casein, and oil. I keep coming back to oil because I love the feel of it. Lately I've been doing a series of figure paintings in oil. When I brought these three pears in from the garden, I tried to paint them as if they were figures.
