This is a smaller version of the painting that hangs in my kitchen.
I have painted this composition several times. The paintings are in collections in the United States and Australia.
The Lazy Red Pear
The number nine says it all~ The brightly colored, loosely painted pear is a collector favorite. I included a version of this painting in last year's sale.
I am very honored to have been allowed to participate in this charity event to support the Cleveland County Arts Council in Shelby, NC. I moved to Charlotte at the first of this year, but still try to help out whenever I can. I publicly showed my first painting at the Council's Artist Competition in 2001, so there is a soft spot in my heart for the Council.
Look forward to seeing you there~
