A FEW MORE PEARS


I haven't had time to get back to the macro hydrangea but I did a little more on the rows of pears.  Sme of the pear bottoms got a bit wonky (I wasn't careful when putting down the masking fluid), but they can be fixed when I put in the shadow shapes.  I was more interested in the backgrounds, anyway.

 


I hope you get some time to paint today - or maybe this weekend.








As for me, I'm off to the house again today to do more sorting, packing, and throwing away things no one wants to keep.  My sister is going to spend time at the courthouse doing a title search.  We need to find out why they are telling us the title is not clear. (Something my aunt did while she lived there, but we don't know what, and we were sure she had paid off the small loan she took out years ago.)  Leaving my aunt the house as a life estate with the house going to others upon her death has made it more difficult than it should have been, legally, but it will get done.  It's just not going to be a cake walk (but if it was, I'd have plenty of pears to put into that cake!)

Hi Rhonda, I'm really liking your pears and the backgrounds are all so fab!

cleaning out the house is no fun, but you may find a surprise that will bring back some fond memories. Good luck to your sister with the title search.

I did enjoy playing with odd combinations for the backgrounds, Carol :) Sometimes just playing takes you in some interesting places. Cleaning, sorting, etc. 3-8 tonight. Taking pain pills for my back so I can move tomorrow!!

Sooner or later you'll get it all sorted out, Rhonda. The pears look so fun with all the color and background choices you've made.

Wow, I love all these variations! So interesting to see how they all work.

Thanks, Sherry. I enjoyed visiting your blog today, too! And you reminded me that I need to get back to these and finish them - even if I don't do anything with them but use them for class demoes.
