Kicking it Up a Notch!

Sliced Red Bartlett Pear, 2006, oil on canvas panel, 6 x 8 inches
It was time to try a more complicated composition for my one day painting. I have been painting single objects trying to get familiar with this new working method. After doing a few of those I took some courage and tried a painting with more than one element. At first it seemed like I was way over my head, to the point that I almost gave up in the beginning stages. But I'm stubborn, so I dared myself to finish it no matter what. Didn't matter if it came out good or not, just do it and learn from it. As many say, practice makes perfect. I'm not sure what will be the next subject but I'm hoping for it to be more challenging.

I just love the LIFE in this one -- so much fun! And beautiful. I wish I had the "artistic" words to describe to you how I feel about your art & specific paintings, but I'm trying my best! :)

Also, we have not in the least forgotten about you. We're waiting for one of Dan's paychecks to get to him before he can write you a check. If you can't hold onto it, I understand completely, and we will definitely choose another! :) But just please DO hold onto your faith in me. :) I can't wait to have a Luis Colan on my walls!!!

love xoxo

Hi Ari, thanks.
Don't worry I'm holding on to your paiting, and will keep doing so unless you change your mind. It's all yours. Hope to see you during thanksgiving week.
Take care
