I painted this impressionistic still life piece primarily using a palette knife. This painting is 12″x18″ acrylic on canvas. I personally stretch each of my canvases by hand. It is a gallery wrapped canvas with the 1 1/2″ deep edges painting dark. The wire hanger at the back makes the piece easy to hang, and it hangs flush with the wall. No framing is necessary. Pears may seem like a very ordinary subject, but I love to paint them in a very playful manner with a wide range of colors.
