"Five Pears and a Pineapple"  Watercolor on Arches 140.  I first treated the basket with gum arabic and am sorry I did.  I wanted to be able to lift the lights out but it made it too hard for the washes to stick while glazing later on.  The pineapple comes from the name of the quilt which I made probably 15 years ago.  Easily the most difficult one I ever made.  I hope to try another quilt painting at some point, this is my second one.

  1. Donna, I think this is one of your strongest pieces. It represents not only your superb watercolor skills but your incredible sense of design. Kudos!
