Still Life with Pears, Bottles and Egg

     I finished this painting today. Its 24 x 30 inches, and it took about five weeks or so, which felt like forever, but I learned a few things in the process. One big thing is not to make the background too dark.  I find if the background isn't too dark there are more options for playing with the positive and negative shapes.  I ended up painting this background four different times before I was happy with it.


  1. This is a beautiful painting. The air moves around each object. Good choice of background color, Trisha. I do admire talent.

  2. Thank you Julie! Thanks for looking and taking the time to comment also. It's much appreciated.
