Red Pears and Three Apples

Red Pears

Red fruit has such a luscious quality.  Red Pears and Three  Apples are acrylic paintings on board.   The pears in Red Pears are sitting on a cloth with an A in the corner; the A stands for Arnott, my favorite grandmother's birth name.

Sexual Attractions

Sexual Attractons is now in MLA for Port Moody-Coquitlam Joe Trasolini's office at 2608 St. John's Street, Port Moody for the next month.   I painted it first as a 6 x 6 acrylic and then had fun painting a bigger version in watercolour.  This is a Phalaenopsis orchid that I was given and it bloomed for a very long time - the perfect subject.
