I paint with acrylics on watercolor paper, using the process of layering the paint and scratching back to reveal unique colors and textures in my paintings.
Mexican Pears is one of my favorite pear still lifes. I chose that name because i I thought it looked a bit like the colorful folk art I've seen in Mexico. Some of my first paintings were of pears. I love painting pears with their lovely feminine forms and beautiful warm colors. I think beginning painters paint pears because of their easier simple forms and the universal theme of pear still lifes through art history with so many well known pear paintings. Matisse's pears come to mind. With some of my pear paintings I feel I had beginners luck, perhaps my happiness at having time to pursue my passion showed through
