It is always so much fun.  I have three paintings in the show this year.  I will be posting the paintings in the coming days~ it does take some of the "mystery" out if you follow my blog~ but you will know what to look for when you get there.

Faye's Pears


Faye's Pears
18" x  24"
Acrylic Paint on Gallery Wrapped Canvas
Commissioned Work

I don't often accept commissions, but when I was asked to do a large pear I couldn't say no.  I am so happy with the way this one turned out.  Kevin is now saying we need a really large pear painting over the fireplace......

Faye's Pears is drying now and will soon be on its way to Tennessee.  

Faye's Pears was painted using professional artist grade acrylic paint on a museum quality gallery wrapped canvas with painted sides to allow for hanging without a frame.  Painting was finished with a light coat of varnish.

Now back to painting!
