Pear Deconstructed II


"Pear Deconstructed II" 10.5"x 8" watercolor
I'm not so much into painting fruits and veggies but I had painted a green version of a cut up pear a couple of years ago and really liked the idea so I had to try it again. I may have to try more food items and see if I can't come up with a twist like this.
(It's been said before but the painting is much better than this picture. .. .. for some reason, the darks and nuances aren't translating as well. I'll have to take another photo and see if I can't get a better shot.)
If you'd like to purchase this one, please email me at:

En La Sombra


"En La Sombra" 29"x 19"
Back in the days before scans and digital cameras were available, at least to me, I painted this watercolor. Long sold, I wish I had it around to take a new images so you could see the nuances in the shadows. I have to say this was one of my favorites because it was one of the first paintings that I learned how to give life to the cast shadows.
