A Pear and A Pair

A Pear and A Pair
6 x 8 Oil Painting

This was a small study begun earlier this month. I had done  a simple set up of a pear and a couple of pansies form my garden as a practice piece and was not too pleased with the initial outcome (which is pictured below).  I set it aside for several weeks and finally thought what to I have to lose to try and improve it.   With nothing to lose and a sense of no attachment, I just went for it and added color, bolder brushwork etc.. on top of what was already there.

  While I can't say the 2nd version pictured above is one of my all time favorites, I can see that rather than give up or just throw it out,  it was worth giving it a 2nd shot to push what I initially deemed a failure to another level. The revised version does seem to me to have more energy and life vs the original which was  okay but not very exciting.

The original version
