One Red Pear and a Blog Award
5 X 7 inch oil painting on textured canvas panel.
$20 (plus $12 shipping in the U.S.)
With about an hour to paint I needed a set up that I could paint quickly without a lot of fuss. Fellow blogger, Torrie Smiley, once said that when she can’t decide what to paint she paints a pear. I liked that idea and put it to use the other morning. It was a fun exercise.
To purchase this painting and see more of my work log onto www.vanderhoekart.etsy.com
Edward Burton, Marian Fortunati and Liz Holm all let me know over the weekend that they passed along the Passion For Painting award to me. I am really touched that these talented painters thought of me! Thank you!
Here are the 7 things I love:
1. The sound of my son's giggles
2. Kind-hearted people
3. Living in beautiful California
4. Dark chocolate
5. Being part of this wonderful group of artists who blog
6. Handmade jewelry
7. Painting, painting, painting!
(I'd pass the award along but I think everyone I know has already gotten it.)
