Been feeling quite beige...

Well, after looking in absolutely every spot I could think of and still not finding the photo I was searching for yesterday, I decided to quit looking and just let it 'come to me.' Sometimes that will happen; I'll quit looking and then will suddenly remember where I put it, when I'm thinking of something completely unrelated.

So, since I have been feeling quite beige lately, I decide to paint something colorful yesterday. I had bought the three most colorful pears at the market to take to use as a still-life when I painted with the Alzheimer's patients last week. So I decided I would paint them myself. I had set them on the top of my flat-top stove, which is black, and it made such lovely reflections, I just used that for my set-up. The painting is in oil on canvas, and is 9"x12". I don't know what it is about pears that makes me want to paint and weave them lately, except maybe just that they are not beige!

Happy to have found your blog, which is lovely! Beautiful painting - I will look forward to seeing the weaving. Looks like a fascinating process - is it difficult?

No difficult, but quite time-consuming!

Hmmm, I really hadn't thought of weaving this one. I have a possible commission coming up, so will have to see how that goes before I warp for anything else. Maybe, though...
