A Pair of Pears


A Pair of Pears – Oil on + x 12 Canvas Panel – Painted May 3, 2009 – A Pair of Pears – I see a lot of pear paintings on the net and like most of them. Personally I prefer them to appear soothing, subtle and yet magnetic to the eyes. I don't know if I have achieved that here; however I like it as it is. My wife will not part with this one as she has framed it in a nice antique gold frame and hung it. Your comments are welcome.

About rbaker

Russell BakerSacramento, Northern California, United StatesAs a student in northern Minnesota I enjoyed being an artist. My uncle Charles: C. X. Carlson, a noted author, artist and muralist was a great influence me. I sketched and painted everyday until age sixteen or so, then it seemed as though life took over. Now, 40+ years later and retired, I have returned to the more pleasurable pastimes of my youth. This year, 2007, I started drawing, painting and playing music once again. It will be interesting to see where these endeavors guide me and how my skills in turn develop over time. Everything I offer here is an original. Some may be renditions of other works I find interesting, however originals just the same. If you see something you would like to purchase, email me.
