Dragon with Pears

"Dragon and Pears," oil on linen, 11"x14" - Sold
Here is a recently completed large painting. (I know...11x14 is really not that large, only for me I guess!)  It's a pleasure and a luxury when I am able to paint a more complex still life and feel that I have the time to be patient with it.  I started this painting in October, with only the thought of getting it finished for my upcoming solo show in March, at Segil Fine Art Gallery.  (I like to have several large paintings in the process, as I also paint smaller pieces.)  The only problem is, and it's a good one, a collector came to my home yesterday and bought "Dragon and Pears."  With this painting now gone, I am feeling the pressure and anxiety to complete and add "larger" paintings for the show.  The clock is ticking...back to painting!


  1. Very cool Amanda! I love the dragon and the red berries.

    Pressure... Tic-Toc-Tic-Toc-Tic-Toc
    Try not to get the 11 x 14 speed wobbles!
    I plan on attending your March Show, anxious to see new work.
    Don't post all before the show, leave us some surprises.
    Keep painting...

  2. Hi David - we will see you there! Thanks!
