Can you guess what the four white spots below are?
This extreme close up shows exactly how our minds can fill in the blanks and finish a painting for us. Impressionism is based on this theory... as our our minds eye mixes the colors and brings form to random shapes we can identify complex subjects with little input. Pretty cool huh?
Scroll down to see what these shapes represent and you can see the subject come to life.

Pears are my favorite fruit to paint… just type in the word “pears” in the search box above if you don’t believe me. Two of my artist friends joined me in my studio to paint this small still life… a study in complementary colors. It was really cool to see each artists’ rendition of this lonely pear. All three renditions are pictured below...
This painting, on wood, is box-framed and ready to hang.
