Apple, Orange, Pear and Mango

Apple, Orange, Pear and Mango – Oil on 9 x 12 Canvas Panel – Painted and First posted to the net April 2, 2009 – When after many years I decided to start painting again I thought "What am I going to paint?" A bowl of fruit was the first thing that popped into my head and I thought how boring, not for me! If that's all I can think of, why start at all. I've put off painting that bowl of fruit until yesterday 4/2/2009 and I've got to say I was wrong. This was one of the most interesting paintings I have done to date. I hope you find it interesting also. 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.
