"Pear Bottoms" --- SOLD



Thank you everyone who responded about my website! I really appreciate the feedback. I changed the daily paintings gallery so that it takes you to a page with some of my favorites, with a link there to my blog. What do you think? And I changed "still lives" to "still lifes" ... duh. : )

As I have gone along on this journey of daily painting, I have gotten quicker and quicker with my paintings, to the point where some take 30 minutes. But lately I have been slowing down again and am liking it. I'm trying to really OBSERVE my subject and get a feel for each part of it before I put down each stroke.

This has been a great week for me in terms of being turned on to talented, "new" artists. I found 3: Rita Foster, Stacey Peterson & Abigail Ryan. Check them out.

Hi Carole! I checked out your website; it looks great! I absolutely love your paintings- they're so rich and juicy, yet many of them have a nice delicacy about them. I'm just curious, what medium do you use with your oils?

I love this one. Maybe the extra time resulted in a more subtle painting, I don't know, but this one is terrific.

It is hard to leave a comment that doesn't just state the obviousness of how wonderful your work is... I am sure you get that a lot. You are quite a painter.

I love the colors in this one, and I think the extra time you put in it shows. Makes me hungry for a pear!

The value structure in this one is really nice. The shadow under the pears make them pop.
