Pears with Stripes
This still life set-up with stripes, creates multiple images in my mind... My imagination goes from two pears placed on fabric reminiscent of a figure painting class where the models position themselves in a comfortable pose, knowing that this one will be held a long time for the class to render their forms and the folds of the fabric just right.... to a green grocer in a small European village with a striped awning over his fruit stand of fresh produce out on the side walk. What does this painting remind you of?
Imaginations are wonderful...
