Limbering up

OK... Since I have been all photography all the time this summer I decided I have to get my painting muscles ready. One of my favorite exorcises for this is to do studies of pears. If you can get the shape right and mingle color in one wash then you are ready. If you can paint a pear or an apple you can paint anything!

Keep Makin' Art

Love this. Remember you need to replace the one you sold (off our kitchen wall!)

Janice Thomson said...

haven't seen anything so far that you can't paint. Beautifully done Carl.

Carl said...

W- Yup. I have to redo that one.

Janice - Thanks very much.

I agree with your premise - and you obviously can. Reading your text I got the idea of an artist's version of Rudyard Kipling's If.

Carl said...

Dave - I love the Kipling poem if. I am thrilled if I sparked an idea for one of your poems!
