Chocolate Pot With Pear

I finished the knife painting today - I painted with the Muses - we had such a wonderful afternoon.  The subject is the same as the monochromatic painting I finished this week and posted.  It is interesting to see the same subject done in different media.  This painting is 10"x8" and is painted on a canvas panel.

Oh my goodness! This is stunning! I love the textures you've achieved with the palette knife and that pear seems to be lit from within!

Thanks, Autumn Leaves! I believe in knife painting like I am rich - in other words - applying the paint very generously! :) I am glad that you feel the light works in this!
