After a week of cold meds and sleeping and watching t.v. and reading while drinking a lot of tea with honey, and sleeping and taking cold meds, I am finally feeling better.
And, yes, I do have some more pears in the starting stages! ha ha I know, you're thinking, NOT MORE PEARS!!!
Last Monday afternoon, I went to spend some time with my youngest grandgirl, Alaina; we had a nice painting afternoon. When I showed her all the pears I'd been painting, she wanted to try some. And stupid grandma did not take her camera!! We talked about what colors pears can be - and she painted one of her pears cobalt teal blue and one cobalt blue (I think she's a Fauvist). She chose the background colors, too.
My version looks like her version, color-wise, except I made my 2nd pear a golden color and added some yellow into my cobalt teal pear. As much as I love blues, I just couldn't paint 2 pure blue pears! ha ha
And I began another horizontal format painting of pears. They will look like stained glass pears (if they turn out the way I want).
But today is cleaning up and getting ready for tomorrow's class. So I may not get back to these today.
If you are in the Mariemont area, do plan to visit the Women's Art Club member show at The Barn at 6980 Cambridge Avenue. I didn't have anything to put in the show this year, but I will get over to see it. The reception was this weekend (I couldn't go because I was still fighting the cold).
But it's open daily through Oct. 5.
Weekdays: Tuesday - Friday, 9 am - 2 pm
Weekends: Sept 15, 16, & 22, 1pm - 4pm
