Abstract with Pear

Abstract with Pear, Acrylic on Paper, 10"x9", NFS
Day 15 of the 30 in 30 Challenge.  This painting is an experiment in the intersection of the real and abstract.  I started with a completely abstract background, drew the still life on top of it, and then painted the fruit and shadows.  I rather like the effect. In fact, I like it well enough to try some more.  I'm sure that with practice I will be able to do a better job integrating the abstract layer and the representational layer.

This painting is not for sale, but I do have other paintings available on my website and on my Daily Paintworks Gallery (icon at right.)
