Pear on Matisse Art Book: 11 x 14 oil still life painting, dancers fruit on saucer colorful daily art realism

Oil on Canvas, 14" x 11"

This was a fun painting because I loved the subject - a pear on a plate set on the back of my Matisse book. I even included the bar code as a spot of color. It was a wonderful exercise to follow the lines of these dancing figures by Matisse.

I love this painting.
Funny story. I was out painting with the Naples Outdoor group Thursday and happened to pull up behind a Mass plate. When she got out I asked "where in Massachusetts?".
She said, "Duxbury, but I used to live in Marshfield."
Small world ;)
