Two Pears (painting #1)

Paintings can be small or large, size does not determine quality.
This painting of two pears measures 6" x 8". It is a study for a larger painting and was completed in one day. My wife Elizabeth jokingly suggested that I paint one painting every day for a year.
As I cannot ignore such a challenge, I instead volunteered to paint or complete one painting per week.
So it begins, 52 paintings, either already in progress or started anew,
to be completed in 52 weeks.

Betty Davis


  1. Love this and can't wait for the ride. I am ready, seat belt fastened!

  2. James...I'm very excited to see where this journey takes you. I will be looking forward to the weekly masterpieces! You are going to love this challenge!

  3. Great idea -- I am envious of anyone who can paint, and who is so naturally gifted as a painter, so I will enjoy your journey. And one day, perhaps when I sell another book, I am determined to own one of your paintings with nasturtiums in it!

    Have fun ~
