Trois Petites Poires - SOLD

5"x 7" Oil on gessoed board.

I worked hard for this still life but what pleasure. I knocked on a stranger's door and asked if I could purchase some of the pears in her tree. She graciously said " take all you want and apples too!" I took the ladder, basket, and chippers out of my car and harvested these and a basket full. I have a multitude of future paintings to come out of my fruitful excursion.

Marilyn the pears are beautiful - can't wait to see the apples ;-) How lucky the strange was willing to share.

Thanks Karen, I think she would have loved for me to rid her of her "messy " fruit. I think I'll be able to help myself for years to come!
