This is my current unfinished painting, Still Life and Pear. (I will be doing more work on the grapes.) I was interested in achieving a sculptural image. The artist Michelangelo was well known for painting figures that conveyed a sculptural image. To achieve this goal, I carefully modeled my forms with warm light and strong cool form shadows. I took into account the geometric forms identified by Cezanne; spheres and cone (top of pear). The size of the fruit is huge. The blue background provides depth.
