I received a wonderful gift basket with a lot of good stuff in it. I didn't realize for quite awhile that there were pears hiding underneath, when I finally found them they were really ripe. Each had wonderful markings and colors, I had to paint them. They are Royal Riviera Pears from Harry & David out of Oregon. They have a wonderful and interesting story.
Red geraniums have been one of my all time favorites to paint. This piece was in my
thoughts and had to paint it. Sometimes remembering what I have seen before.
What started the old window scene, we were staying at a cottage in Carmel,
the window in the kitchen was looking out at the beautiful landscape
with a window box full of red geraniums in front of the window. I have been
painting them ever since.
