"Disturbed Shadows" --- SOLD



I did a large painting yesterday with these three pears in it - pretty much in this same configuration - and a bunch of other stuff. I really liked the long shadows and the three pears sort of in a line, so I decided to try it again on a smaller scale. My favorite parts are where the third pear shadow goes off into the blue, and where the white fabric folds up at the bottom edge.

Carol, You always come up with such interesting compositions. How long do you typically spend setting them up? Barb

The compositions are awesome and the brushwork is lively and delicate.

Thank you both so much!

Barbie, I spend anywhere from a minute (when I'm lucky or it's REALLY simple) to a half an hour setting up these small still lives. I give myself an average of 2 hours for the larger ones. I think composition is really important.

Funny how long it takes to get a setup working.
I forgot to mention the wonderful shapes in your dramatic drapery.
