On The Edge-sold

oil on canvas panel 6x6 inches
There's something soothing about green. In this painting I used two different green fields to break up the negative space. The fruits all seem to be following the line between the two greens and heading toward the knife, hence the title. I'm finding that in painting pears, I have to make the bottom shadow side darker than it appears in life in order to sit that pear down firmly in my painting.


  1. So nice Karen!

    Love the manner you cropped the knife and it's angle in relation to the pears. Looks as if they are lined up, ready to be pared - oh, oh....

  2. Beautiful painting. Love your colors and the softness to your brushwork.
