Still Life. How to preserve. And I don’t mean with sugar or air drying. Painting them works for me. The pear tree in our garden is somewhat of a diva. With really sweet and juice little pears it is like it knows to give fruit only when it pleases. To savor that rare occasion I paint some pears. Here are two paintings. The blue one is from this year.
I have never found it especially interesting to paint still life. A folded fabric next to a fruit in front of a glass behind a feather and so on. Even if it good practice it is nothing I choose to do. Except for pears. I like their shape. And now I choose to paint what I like and enjoy. What a luxury. That is “still life”.
