We had a special young visitor who's adventures included meeting and feeding the sheep in my field. Apparently he was retelling his adventures to his Mother but had forgotten the names of his wooly new friends. So I sat down to rectify the situation ... what started out as a quick cartoon turned into a wonderful Sunday morning drawing session. Drawn to depict the view a 5 year old would have. I had never realised what funny looking beasts sheep are!
Mid September my neighbour brought us a bag of beautiful pears from their tree, one fruit had stem and leaves intact which is a painters dream come true ... so I rushed it up to my studio and painted it. Being the beautiful Okanagan, we have frequent visitors, and the next three days had several so the still life was painted in snippets and quickly before everything wilted! Photography can't quite capture the luminous quality depicted in this painting.
