"Left Behind" - original still life oil painting

Here's another of the still life paintings from the class.  Probably sounds silly, but I tried to imagine that the pears have emotions (and who knows?) and they're being pretty mean, excluding the poor green pear.  So I arranged them accordingly.  Fun to paint - I'm learning to love painting fruit and vegetables - something I never dreamed would happen.  This painting is 8 x 10".  Thanks for looking!

I love your emotional pears ... including the one that's green with envy at the pair of pears

So cool you're having fun with something different.. I like to change things up too. I can see all your work finally by using my phone. Who'd have thought? Win 10 caused me a lot of problems. :)

Have discovered I can find more drama in the painting of a still life than in the figurative.. Like the drama and the dialog here very much..

Hi Anthony - until I painted these still live subjects, I would have never guessed the drama that can be found in them. Totally agree with you - thanks for visiting!

Hi John - I didn't even think about the green with envy - gives a whole new depth to the story - and the pear-pair word play - Love it!
