While I was on vacation I had every intention of painting. I wanted to paint a pear, inspired by the video I watched while away (see previous post). One of my many new goals is to paint more from life, rather than from photos, which I do mostly for convenience. This is a pear that I bought while I was on vacation and brought along home with me. I am doing my best to focus on consistent small improvements, in everything that I do, rather than expecting great change all at once. I am reading a great book about this called The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson. Great positive reading. Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by to read my blog. This painting is available for sale, $45, unframed.
