I usually give a small painting to friend's and family's children who are getting married. Most of the time it is pears. Good for me because I love to paint them and good for them to have a piece of art work to start out with. I laugh when I think back about what I put on the walls of our first apartment. I taped matted drawings that I did in college classes to the wall.
Hope you all are having a good weekend!
The pears are painted on a 5 x 7" linen canvas.
Wonderful light and great values on the pears. I love the little splash of orange in the reflected light!ReplyDelete
I love your pears. A favorite subject of mine. Your brushwork is yummy.ReplyDelete
What a great wedding gift for a new couple to start out with. Your first apartment story sounded a little like mine as well...I do remember that thumb tacks were involved...not exactly "house beautiful"!!!ReplyDelete
You made me laugh with your decorating story? Why? Because I'd bet your walls looked beautiful! A very lovely gift for this couple starting out!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful and thoughtful gift, also love pears - they're like people, all so different and so much character!ReplyDelete
Your pears are probably what is prompting some of those weddings - they are fabulous! So loose and juicy! How about if someone renews their vows? I could do that!ReplyDelete
What a great idea! I have sooo many of my daughter's friends getting married that I may need to start this tradition too! Love your pears!ReplyDelete
