Every holiday season, I promise myself and my husband that we are going to get back to some basics. For the most part, we have managed to do that. Less emphasis on gifts, more emphasis on sharing of ourselves. This simple painting emphasizes the simple gift of nature - a pear. A reminder of the sweet side of life and the gifts and blessings bestowed from something, or someone, greater than ourselves. The style is realistic and yet it's paint surface is rich.
I'll be doing a few more Christmas and holiday paintings as the new year approaches. Watch for them.
