I saw these images in a magazine and immediately was inspired to paint them using oil on canvas; one pear, one cherry and two champagne flutes on a table. Since it had been a while that I painted still life, I thought it would be fun to make it modern and colorful. With that in mind; I made the table more abstract, changed the background to more vibrant hues of green and extended the cherry stem to touch the pear stem. I enjoy using oils because this medium allows you the option of painting "wet on wet," and let me finish it in around 2 hours.
