Do You Want to Paint a Pear?

 

At first, I started these 3 paintings to demonstrate painting techniques to my students during class. Since I had already painted a set on neutral (brown and beige) backgrounds, I decided to try something I don't normally work with: the color blue! More specifically, the vibrant phtalo blue.

For a while, I had also been wanting to teach someone who had never held a paintbrush, someone who was convinced they would never be able to really paint. Would I be able to convince them that they could, and then actually make them do it and enjoy the process?

So on one of our long drives to Canada (where my daughter lives), my husband jokingly suggested I try with him... but his joke didn't actually work, because I thought it was a fantastic idea (by the way, my husband is terrible at art!)!
Finally, I did get my husband and his friend Dave to try it. It was fun, they both did a fantastic job, and I learned a lot. My husband was so impressed with himself that he shows his painting every time we have guests. He also keeps saying, "if she can teach me, she can teach a dead man!" My next step: make him work on his marketing skills!
