Catching Tumbling Red Pears – a not-so-still still life painting

New Release – TUMBLING RED PEARS
20 x 16 inch oil on canvas by Terrill Welch

Tumbling Red Pears 20 x 16 inch oil on canvas  by Terrill Welch 2014_08_01 030
Detailed view and purchase information at: HERE

Did you know you were going to paint these red pears tumbling out of a canvas when you saw them in the grocery store?

The painter blinks, slightly confused and unable to answer as she comes out of her painting trance – her deep practice of noticing what she sees, a seeing that uses all of her sense, a seeing that is disrupted by her memory and is enhanced by her imagination. At this moment all she can remember, all she can “see” is tumbling red pears – the ones she imagined, the ones she painted on the canvas. This is her painting of reality.

If you are interested in the background and seeing the work-in-progress for this painting it is posted on Terrill’s Creative Potager at: HERE
