"Three Porcelain Pears"

This is the latest painting I've done with the still life group that meets on Tuesday evenings at Michelle Walker's studio.  I got a late start on this one due to the fact that I attended my grandson's baseball game before.  Ryan is 8 years old and is a great baseball player - at least from Grandma's viewpoint - and one thing is certain...he is the cutest, best-looking 8 year old on the diamond!!!

Michelle set up this still life with white porcelain pears and a gold plein-air frame.  Unfortunately my granddaughter says she likes my purple pears, so I guess I went a little overboard with the purple for the shadows.

This painting is done in oil and is painted on an 8"x10" canvas panel which was underpainted in black gesso.
