I pulled out an old journal (2011) last night that was only half filled. It's a journal that I was practicing techniques in. The last two pages that I had done anything to were these. I had done some technique to the background and never did anything more with them. You can see some kind of stencil activity if you look closely. At any rate....do you think I remember now what that technique was to replicate?!
I decided to sketch a pear from a wire pear I have in my kitchen. It's about 7-8" tall and I love the whimsical quality of it. On the opposite page I was going to do a "pair of pears"....it's all about the pear, pair, pare! But, as you see, I got carried away...and there are lots of pears here. The page already had the blue background and I painted the golden colors and rubber stamped with a couple of cool pear stamps that I just love. I could do a whole little journal just on pears. I have no idea why...just love their shapes.
