Thirty Things You Don't Know About Me

#16 - My favorite fruit to paint is a pear.

I love painting pears. They are fun to paint because they have so many different surfaces. I love the shadows, odd shapes and changes in colors and temperatures of a pear. I have probably painted as many pears as boats in my art career. I love painting a small pear painting on the first day of my workshops.

Today I started teaching a three day "Painting Large" workshop and we started out with a quick and small painting. Of course we painted a pear and it was fun and fast! Painting a small painting is a great way to practice painting with a palette knife. Of course the color mixing took way longer than painting the actual painting!

Next week I am releasing my 2015 workshop schedule. I am coming to Cape Cod, Atlanta and Richmond in 2015! Plus you can paint and stay with me in Ventura, CA at the beach house! Click here for more information!

I am also offering Monday Online Studio painting classes beginning October 2014! Join me each month as we paint boats, roosters, glass, beach scenes, umbrellas, etc. with a palette knife! Click here to find out more.
