Two Yellow Pears


 Just a simple set up of two ripe, yellow pears. They are nestled on an antique doily. They're ready for port and stilton!

This is a 5 x 5" still life oil painting on canvas board.

Here's the auction...

"Hint of Autumn"

The northwest hills of Connecticut have some gorgeous farmlands with beautiful vistas. This barn was in the Kent area and you could just see the trees starting to turn and a few fallen leaves on the ground. I was struck by the strong sunlight on the silo and left side of the barn, and the strong rusty red color of the barn against the sky. This landscape painting was done on Arches watercolor cold press paper and is 10 1/4" x 14 1/4". I was pleased that it was accepted into the 2011 Connecticut Watercolor Society Fall Juried Show.
