12 x 9 inches, oil on panel

OK! The last one for now - 9 x 12 inches, oil on MDF panel.

This is a continuation of the Peeled Orange theme (posted in June) where I included a tube of paint that I used to paint the main object.

The paint is by Winsor & Newton and I'm happy to say that they have bought this one and that I will be the featured artist in their 'Painting Matters' October newsletter 

P.S. this is a very grainy/fuzzy photo but I just couldn't get a better shot and Photoshop didn't help either.

12 x 9 inches, oil on MDF panel

I just loved the light coming through the leaves and the shadow on the pear, I really enjoyed painting this one.

Well, it's been a while folks.
I found it very hard to get back to painting after my father passing away in July and I even had to abandon five paintings in the last three months that I just couldn't finish as they were beyond salvage (I even started one of them again and had to trash that too!!), such a waste of weeks of work … not to mention loss of income! 
It was as though I'd forgotten how to paint, like some kind of mental block that I couldn't shake off.
I'm hoping that I'm back on track again now but time will tell ........
