"Surrounded" --- SOLD
I've had this idea for a while to do paintings of fruit that convey some sort of drama. Mostly, with this blog, I have focused on HOW to paint rather than WHAT to paint. However, I am now getting to a point where I am comfortable enough with the how and am getting more into the what. What?
Sometimes I have an idea ahead of time of a funny/interesting scenario, but mostly they come to me as I position and reposition...and reposition, etc. With this one I was going for an army of pears because they were on the floor of my studio like that and I liked it. But it was missing something. An orange. So, is it a casual surrounding? Or are the pears picking on the poor orange? I suppose that's for the viewer to decide.
