Day Eighty-Nine


8 x 8 oil on panel
50.00 + 6.00 s + h
      I tried the pears again, this time in a bowl.  The bowl is challenging, as was the arrangement of the fruit.     I returned to finish this after dinner and discovered that I could be freer without my glasses on, because I could only see shapes vaguely.  Sounds crazy, I know, but it's kinda like squinting.  It lets you stay generally looser because you can't contentrate on the details so much.  I then put my glasses on and touched up the stems a bit.   live and learn !
     Still very wet, I put this on the scanner balanced on two strips of matboard, so it wouldn't get paint on the scanner glass ! ha !-- We ate the artichokes for dinner-- yummy !

  1. What a great idea about the glasses! I'll definitely try that one. Lovely colors in your pears and bowl!
