Sweet and Savory

I recently attended an art workshop with master painter Quang Ho. Quang is a gifted artist and wonderful educator. I came away with a new appreciation and better understanding for ALL types of art.
While there I painted this still life of a pear and two onions on a mahogany dining table.  I wanted to do a simple, uncomplicated painting so I set up just three items. However, it turned out to be more difficult than I anticipated as I was dealing with both shadow and reflection. The room was lit only by the late afternoon sun. The painting is on a gessoed panel and is 11x14. I will keep this one as a remembrance of the experience.


  1. Love the strong light hitting the onion and pear. Good job on the reflections as well. Want to hear more about the workshop. Guess I will see you Saturday.

  2. Beautiful painting. Love the reflections.
