A potentially happy ending for these two.
Continuing on with the pear theme…and a Gerber from the bouquet.
I was encouraged by the response to my last painting so did several more like it. I thought pears would be quick, but I was so wrong!
The title came about as a projection of some problems I’ve been having at work. I bought a book called The Bully at Work and they say 37% of American Workers have been bullied! Astonishing. It doesn’t feel good to be a Target and I wonder what I did to deserve all this aggravation. Then, again, I’m going to try to knock it out of the park when I’m evaluated by 4 different women, at least 2 of whom seem to me to have made up their minds without, mind you, ever having really spent any time observing me (or very little). Anyway, the pear on the right was shining more brightly than the one on the left, but the one on the left is “elevated.” It’s kind of nutty to make up stories about fruit but C. Marine does it, so what the hey? I got an unusual bump up on Instagram from this painting. Ten times the usual amount of new followers….and a lot of hearts! Was it the painting or the title? Life is just full of surprises. You just never know what to expect from people, be they your audience or your supervisor…sigh…
Fourth one. One more tomorrow and then veering off in a new direction…
Third painting of this bouquet.
This is the second one from yesterday’s bouquet. The next ones will focus on the roses as well.
This was a new bouquet…and some cute little apples. There are actually roses hiding in this…you’ll see them next painting.
I painted this when we got back from Vegas. Amazingly there was still some life left to this bouquet…but it was kind of over, like the summer…and does start to have that autumn vibe to it.
