"POLKA DOT PEAR" by Marina Petro

Now isn't this a nice little painting? I enjoyed painting it and will probably use this fabric again soon. Love the polka dots. I don't own one piece of clothing with polka dots, though. I visited the local orchard farm
store and picked up a few apples with the leaves attached. Hopefully I will get to painting them before it's a toss up between painting, or eating them before they go bad.

Creativity can be a blessing and a curse. I have so many ideas constantly coming into my mind...and partially initiated... that I've overextended myself. One thing I'll say is I am never bored or blocked so I guess that's a good thing. This morning I got all my angel paintings (21 in all) together in a folder. I am planning to create a book with inspirational quotations along with each painting. I'll see how it goes and possibly add some of my garden paintings as well. I'd like to have it available at my annual studio sale. Yes, it's things like this that keep me at the edge...

Today's Quotation: "The ideals which have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been kindness, beauty and truth."
-Albert Einstein

Marina, I love the pear, AND the background - what a nice piece! And the quote is perfect - I was surprised by the author! (Now tell me... did you 'copy & paste it or did you re-type it like I've had to???) ;0 Kelley
