You Will Know A Tree By It's Fruit
Acrylic — 2014
This painting was a gift for a dear couple who have been together for a long time and have been a huge blessing to their family and community. I found the frame at Goodwill and painted the tree to match the frame. It's hard to tell in the photos, but the fruit and flowers are slightly three-dimensional. The pears especially are smooth and round and project from the picture plane.
With acrylic, I often get excited about dimensional, translucent, and reflective paint, and those things are really hard to capture on a computer screen.
