Pear on a Shelf ~ In am attracted to painting something vintage with something fresh. I love the tarnished, the dented, the old, and often the tossed-aside things, eagerly getting my palette knife in there to bring some dignity and new life to them. I am a Still Life Photographer who has evolved into a Still Life Painter.

Judge's Comment: "This beautifully rendered still life is invigorated with cool and bright contrasting hues in a stark color scheme. There is a rich sensation of texture, volume and weight in the objects depicted. Careful color choices-- the vibrant green pear and its intense reflection in the mottled pewter urn, along with its stem and leaf curving below the rough-cut marble base--are key to the flowing design and balanced composition, keeping our interest in a painting worth viewing over and over."
