Poppies and Pears

Poppies and Pears- SOLD
Oil on Canvas

Happy 2009! If you're like me, you're wondering where on earth 2008 went and why it was in such a hurry to vacate the premises. I've been painting poppies lately, and placed some of my pink poppies in a new home with a family who lives in nearby Coppell, Texas, this week. I've been in a painting frenzy the past few days, since I only have 36 hours of vacation left.

I hope you've had some time to dedicate to your favorite passtime over the holidays, and you got to indulge just a bit, maybe in something chocolatey to drink with whippy creme on top!

Excellent painting! I really like how the dark centers of the flowers contrast with the light petals and the centers seem to compliment the color of the vase.

In addition, the pears are extremely well done. After looking around at the painting, it was a nice sight to just see the pears at the bottom. Some extra "candy" for the eyes.

I love it when you paint pears. (Have you painted a bowl of them yet?) The blue vase meshes well with the red and yellow. You have such talent my lady friend : )

Thanks Dougie - I look forward to seeing your landscape when you're finished with it - you've got a really nice start to it already.
Sharon, you are pushing me, ouch ouch! a bowl of pears, that's a great idea...I will give it a try. Thank you for letting me paint from your beautiful photos!
