Copper, Pears, and Spode


Copper, Pears, and Spode
8" x 10" original oil painting

gallery wrap stretched canvas
Standard size for easy, economical framing!

Available


This still life was painted from life,
which is my usual way of painting...
and yes, the the light actually
reflected a dab of red-orange from
the copper pot onto the table surface.
The wood table surface also has colorful
reflections of the pear, vintage copper pot,
and Spode porcelain dish.The vintage copper
pot has a shiny aged finish
which has its own
reflections to enjoy.

Silk Landing

Silk Landing
premium canvas board
5" x 7" original oil painting


Sold


A silk embroidery creates a soft and
elegant landing
for these Bartlett pears.

I was very pleased with the color harmony
in this painting. Also, the surface contrast of
hard pears and the soft silky Chinese embroidery
and the mysterious background
hold the viewer's attention.
All of these qualities make for a strong painting.

These timeless vintage cobalt bottles
share their wonderful blue colors
even within their shadows.

I did this as a quick study,
an observance of transparency,
light and shadow.
