Grapes and Pears – oil on canvas

For some reason I really like painting fruit. I like the simplicity of the shapes and the challenge of getting the colors and shadows right. Some people say I have a gift for drawing and painting but that sounds like I don’t have to work at my art. I have worked many years on improving my art and still work at it every time I paint or draw. Not all of my paintings turn out well either, in fact I think my average is about 50%. I guess that’s why it’s called art “work”.
