This painting was done with less than usual directional overhead lighting. Sometimes, I just dont need all that drama.

Backlit Pears

These little red pears were my original subjects but after I set up the lighting I found that the warm orange reds in the apple added was a nice contrast to the cool crimson in the pears. I like the drama and while the pears are in the foreground, the apple clearly plays the leading role here.

Conversation Hearts

Just for grins I thought it would be fun to do a few of these little guys for the Chocolate Festival this weekend. I had to search far and wide to find frames for these little 4x4's which is why I like to stick to standard sizes.
