Two Green Pears {a new still life}

On Peggy’s Hutch – 8" x 10" (20.3 x 25 cm) – Oil Canvas Panel


This past weekend was spent in Monterey, VA at my friend Peggy’s house. We were four artists all inspired to spend the time exploring, chatting, playing cards and painting. It was a magnificent time and I feel very fortunate to have been included.

Over the weekend I met for the first time the very talented Tricia Ratliff. She is another career changer that has recently decided to pursue art full time. It was so special to meet in person someone so full of energy and with such dedication to her art career, that I kinda feel my head spinning thinking of all the possibilities she has inspired in me… Tricia is also an art instructor and disseminator of ideas through her blogs! Here is her one on art and ideas, and this one is of her paintings.

Have a wonderful evening, ours looks to be clear and warm. Spring is definitely in the air!


PS. Thank you for all the kind comments about yesterday’s post! It means a lot to me to receive your support.

I still LOVE this painting! It was so great to paint with you and spend the weekend talking about art and life. I hope we have the opportunity to do it again sometime. Thinking of you often. Oh ... and saw a big painting of yours recently at the art league. WOW! You rock!
