Single Pear

"Single Pear"
8" X 10"
oil on art board

I used metallic paint in the underpainting (gold, silver, and copper).  I think the paints are coming through a bit.  It's been nice being back in the studio, and even better completing something.

I'll be Christmas shopping today, and I hope to catch up with y'all this evening!

Until next time...
