My Attempt at Painting

I saw this picture of a painted pear in the Christmas with Southern Living 2005 book and loved it. So, I thought I'd try to see if I could paint one myself. I think I did o.k. for a total non-artist. I may do another one and make the pear larger and cover more of the canvas like the one in the book. I just love the green color and want to incorporate more of it around my house. Hope y'all had a good weekend! Have a great Monday!

I think that's pretty darn good Angie! It looks like the one in the photo. I love apple green and use it as an accent color in my house (it goes so well with black)!
You did a really good job!

I'm very impressed that you didn't allow your "non-artist" status to keep you from trying this. I, too, am a non-artist, but in the past years have picked up a paintbrush and had a little fun with it only to totally surprise myself. It's a lot about training your eye to see the parts of a picture in order to replicate it. Don't you think?
