Gold Pear

"Gold Pear"

7 x 5, oil

I thought I'd share a little warm up I did this morning before I started a larger painting that I'm working on right now.  This is something a lot of artists recommend doing... painting a simple, small painting before starting on a larger one.  I paint them with the intention of not sharing them.. and then there is no pressure... and I can paint freely, and even stop when I think I've painted enough.  I think this one turned out better than most of them, so I decided to share.


  1. I think it is perfect in every way. Love the well placed texture strokes.
