Pear and Berries, Acrylic on Gessoboard, 6"x6", $100
Last winter when I was totally color starved, I bought some strawberries and spent a day setting up still lifes and photographing them for later use. Yesterday, I decided to paint one of them. I used a palette knife for most of the work. I was experimenting with foreground and background colors and decided to use the pear colors for both - straight Pthalo Blue with varying amounts of Hansa Yellow Light for the background, then the same colors mixed with white for the foreground.

I am a painter living in Vermont. I've been painting for about 20 years learning as I go along. In the last couple of years I've been learning a bunch of new painting techniques and experimenting with new subject matter.
