6" x 6", Oil on Masonite

I know, I know...yet another pear. I don't know why I love to paint them, but I do. And I think this is my favorite one yet. One thing I am trying to do is to paint more quickly. I feel that when I try too hard to make a painting technically accurate that I lose some emotion; it almost feels mechanical. I finished this entire painting in 30 minutes! I love when a painting is loose and impressionistic with soft edges; I think I accomplished that with this one.

Phenomenal brush strokes, brilliant color and great texture. Maybe one of my favorites too! Never get tired of the pears!
