Pears and Hand Painted Wallpaper

Forelle Pear and Flowers  6"x6" Oil on Linen Panel sold Bartlett Pear and Flowers 5"x7" Oil on Linen Panel sold Since we've moved, I have been eager to paint the walls to make them look like hand painted silk. A few weeks ago we went to the used book store and I found some wonderful books with photos of such wonderful style of antique wallpapers. I love the worn look and the layers of separated color created by the process of screen printing. Then I thought how wonderful it would contrast with the gradual transition of value in the fruit paintings I make. I had done a couple of paintings when I first got my book (both paintings sold), and I couldn't wait for the chance to do more. That is the plan once Fallbreak comes around. I hope you like them also.
