Olive oil and a pear

I was told to take the pear and paint its portrait so thank you, Reem, for the lovely pear. It made a nice compliment to the olive oil and I enjoyed painting this.
Oil on canvas, 8x10", still life

Also, I don't know how I missed this but watercolor artist Steve Hanks has passed away. I and so many others have admired his amazing skin tones and skill. His work was sensuous, at times I found some of his paintings a tad lascivious but always, always beautifully done. I grieve that we won't have any more of his stunning art. Pinterest is a good place to see a great deal of his work.

And perhaps some of you can help me: My blog loads so slow on the sidebar. The main page loads rather quickly, but for me at least, it just lags when loading the sidebar. I've reduced the number of posts and also the number of sidebar people I watch but I really enjoy seeing the newest that others post so I don't want to reduce it more than what it is currently. I'm wondering if there might be something I'm missing. Any clues?

You can't fight the undertow

I painted the fish first and it just screamed out for some kind of drama. So I added the duck. I think I like the duck best, but the fish was fun to paint.

Cheers all,
(the first WIP - I think it's kinda fun to see the steps)
