Ménage a trois, no. 1,

Pastel on pastel card, approx. 4 1/2 x 6 inches.  

I am participating in an art exchange with some online artist friends. This is my first contribution and it went to Sherry at  Late B(l)oomer in exchange for her beautiful rooster on yupo paper!

    I'm a big pear fan Marta and this is just beautiful I particulary like the scuff marks on the green pear in the front. It gives it character. I'm sure Sherry is pleased. (The scan on her blog looks different though. I think yours turned out better, so I'm glad you both posted it). I'm still plodding away on the project, although I've been distracted by a book making class and (today) my first oil painting class. So, who knows what I will be sending off to my art buddies...

    Marta, I was remiss in not adding a link to you blog. I went back just now and added one. Sharon is right, my JPEG looks darker, even though I brightened it a bit. Different machines, I suppose. Thank you again for a beautiful painting.

  6. This is a wonderful drawing. You have put a lot of life and movement into this still life and the colors are so vibrant.

    You know you are a great artist when your friend tell you that she wants to bite over the pear painting on the computer screen. So yummy and alluring at the same time.
