Ellen's Pear

My friend Ellen brought this pear home from the Market on Saturday. I photographed it at noon and it made this remarkable shadow. A shadow that only noon in October can make.

16" x 20" Plate of Oranges

I bought a blow torch and it's changed my world. It's so much easier to get the flame focused while still leaving everything intact. I love it. This one also from the cover of Cook's Illustrated by Elizabeth Brandon.

Beth Mueller's Pears from Cook's Illustrated

I painted these a couple of years ago and decided to return to them to see how I've progressed. I'm pretty happy with how they came out.

This is the last in this series of little abstract paintings. I'm sure there will be more, but I'm working on another large still life from Cook's Illustrated.

Open Studios gets under way next weekend. You can learn about it by going to the Artspan website or picking up a guide around town. Look for Trish and I on the 3d weekend.
