Three Pears

DPW Auction link

"Three Pears" is an 8 x 10 oil painting on canvas board.  You see these beautiful pears in the grocery now along with many other varieties, but this is one of my favorites. I thought the golden/orange color was the perfect counterpart to the blue and white bowl.  Hope you enjoy this little piece, it appears these pears are having a serious talk.

Fresh Snow


Ok, I know it's too early to mention snow--except of course, for skiers and snowboarders--but I sat down a few days ago to do a small watercolor and this came to mind so I went with it.  The inspiration comes from the many barns in our area, which used to be a large farming community.  Many are gone now, but there are still some lovely ones and this is a tribute to them.  Winter here tends to give us beautiful sunsets so I incorporated that into this painting.  This painting on watercolor board is 9.5" wide by 6.5" high and is matted to 11 x 14".  Hope you enjoy it.
