"Don't Push!" --- SOLD


I thought of several different titles for this one, but my husband felt his was best so that's what I used. : ) I really like how colors change in shadow. The "pink" ground was actually a light purple, but the light I used is yellow, and it looked dark blue-purple in shadow, and orangey-pink in the light. Crazy. I've also awlays liked putting things of a certain color right next to something only a slightly different color, like these pears on green. I don't know why.

It shows a skilled mastery of colors - that's why! ;) It's beautiful...my favorite painting since the "Pear Bottoms".

The yellowy green pears and the pinky violet cloth are perfect compliments.
Masterful is the word. Vibrant color and brushwork.
