Occasional thoughts,reminiscences and ideas from the artist Darrell Baschak

I found this small painting (6x8) in the back of a studio cabinet a little while ago and decided to make some radical changes to it. What I ended up doing was applying imitation gold leaf to the background and did that ever make the pears pop out! Painting the still life is a contemplative practice for me and adding the leaf elevated the pears to an iconic level, somewhere where I went whilst painting. Hope you enjoy it.
