PEAR, TWICE SLICED / Daily Painting #987

Oil on Paper Mounted on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

While on the subject of pears, I felt it would be interesting to do a painting depicting both the inside and outside view of a pear, and then to share a photograph of the same subject on When a Painter Snaps, my daily photo blog.

THE LONELY TWIN Daily Painting #919

THE LONELY TWIN

Oil on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

If you would like to own this painting, just send your bid in an email to: farnsworthgallery@newmex.com, or call Thea at 505 982-4561.

Remember the Chilean Pear Twins from a few days ago? Well, I ate one, and was disappointed. It was so beautiful to see, and to paint, but apparently not ready to be eaten.

The other twin, forgotten in Betsy in the interim, ripened and took on the color almost of a plum. When I finished painting it, I succumbed to its charms and devoured it. Much better. But more like a plum than a pear. Hmmm, I wonder. Chilean plum? Hybrid? Does anyone out there know for sure? Please enlighten us with a comment if you do.

NOTE:

I spent quite a bit of time recently, responding to comments on previous posts. For some unknown reason, most of them never showed up on the blog. I'm working on a solution. In the meantime, I hope all of you who have left comments here and on whenapaintersnaps know how very much your comments are appreciated and how important they are to me, especially when I'm tempted to falter.

It can be especially difficult to keep both blogs going on a daily basis while traveling. I can't always respond, but I always read and appreciate them.

I would love to see more dialog forming between those who follow my blogs and comment on them. Hint, hint.
