Strawberry and Pear

Although, in the end, I was pleased with this painting, it was a struggle. The background color changed several times -- initially it was a much warmer color, almost a flesh tone. You can see remnants of it, mixed in with the gray.


  1. A stark scene, yet ever so lovely!

  2. Ooh, pretty! Such a beautiful sense of quiet. And the composition is lovely. As a painter who still finds painting a challenge, it's comforting and encouraging to realize that struggles can happen (even to more experienced painters) as part of the process. Thanks for sharing that. I'm glad you persevered!

  3. So beautiful! You capture such a sense of serenity and contemplation. No sign of any struggle but maybe the struggle in the making is what gives this painting its richness.
