Over the week-end....

"Pear Harvest"
Oil on 8"x 10" stretched canvas
Hubby wanted to eat these (actually wanted a pear salad) so I had to paint quickly, then follow up with photos I took. They were picked from our 2-yr old tree, and are not like the yellow Bartlett pears but more like Kiefer. I enjoyed painting this anyway.

A Big Thank-You!

To all followers and readers of my blog..... Thanks for all your recent encouraging comments and emails. Means alot to me ..... Lately it seems to just be the same-old, same-old, stick-to-it-itiveness of everyday life. Not much exciting.....

I am glad for the reprieve of somewhat cooler weather this last week, after the heat taking it's toll in the rabbit barn. Life seems to be settling down a little and I hope to get back to some painting soon. Meanwhile, I have been enjoying catching up on other's blogs, and studying techniques and paintings of other artists. Got to love this internet!

2nd Time Around ...

I had done this painting back in May, but had never been happy with it.... especially the fore ground. I have re-worked several areas and am now satisfied with it. It is from a photo taken near Franklin, Pa near Fisherman's Cove, a "retired" caboose now in use as a fishing camp.

"End of the Line"
I am also happy with the old frame that I found for it. I cut it down by an inch in width, put it back together, and used on this painting. I think it compliments the painting.
11" x 14" oil on stretched canvas.
