I found painting a red vase a little more difficult then I expected. I guess because there were many shades of red and I didn't wanted it as bright as it was so I toned it down. I have pears in many of my paintings currently because I bought a big container at Sam's and just keep using them. I think I am getting down to the end. Usually by the time I finish the painting they are mushy. Next weekend I will varnish this painting and it will be at the Spotlight On Art Show at the Trinity School. I will post the information in a week or so. After viewing this picture I adjusted the neck and top part of the red vase to make it more even. I will post a new picture if I have time next Saturday.
