Still Life with Pears

Still Life with Pears,
16 x 20, mixed media

This painting is inspired by some of the old master paintings.  I just love how they tilted the objects toward the viewer to make a better composition.  Watch how I take you around the painting.  The cup and book are linked to the white napkin taking you toward the bowl of pears.  The pear stems tilt toward the vase of flowers and then your eye drops down and circles around again.  Enjoy!
