Red Pears on Mexican Pottery Dish Oil Painting-Marina Petro

Red Pears On Talavera Pottery Dish
Oil painting on archival Raymar canvas panel

Another painting created on a dish my daughter, Joy, let me borrow. Wish I'd taken some reference pictures for future paintings, as she no longer has the dish. In any case, I'm happy with how this piece turned out.

I delivered paintings to Fortune's Restaurant, overlooking the trotters racetrack at Saratoga Gaming and Raceway this afternoon.  I'm glad they will be on display for two months because it was a bit of an ordeal getting them all there. Fortunately, someone else from the establishment is hanging them, so I was off the hook for that and very relieved. As soon as they are up, I'll take some pics and post them. Hope some of you can make it over there. I'm calling the exhibit "Visions Of Heaven & Earth"

As if I could touch - captured the scene wonderfully Marina!

Just beautiful. Such vibrants colors in both the fruit and the plate.
