Pears & Grapes by Marina Petro
"Pears & Grapes"
Original oil painting on gallery wrapped canvas, painted around all sides.
Email me to inquire about purchasing this piece.
I am not crazy about the background color with this painting but decided to leave it regardless. What I have found consistently is that very often, what I don't particularly like is something someone else loves. Paintings I thought would never sell, sold sooner than the ones I thought would fly out of here, or wherever they were. I thought the very first angel painting I did years ago (Angel Descending) was terrible. It sold immediately and continues to be one of the most popular cards and prints I have.
Today's Quotation: "Painting seems to be my obsession. I feel some resentment at all the other things in life that take me away from my studio. This obsession constantly judges all other calls on my time and energy."
