Small work

Here is a 4x7" inch oil painting of a pear. The smaller work moves well in the gallery because I charge by the square inch...Is it still a still life?

Looks like a still life to me. And it looks like it would taste like a pear. A fine job. I like to work small and simple much of the time. I find it keeps my larger work from becoming too overly detailed. here's one of my pears .

What size Patrick?

Thanks for your comments Patrick and Fink...You might think this weird, but I know the painting is done when I begin smelling whatever it is I'm painting, flower or fruit.

Could be because it's starting to rot.

As legend has it Mattise whould make his family suffer the Paris winters with the windows open so his still life arrangments would stay fresh.

A still life? It is a portrait of a pear and belongs in the portrait section to be sure! Nawwww hehehe it belongs here And the plums! They are vibrating with energy! (And, oops , I want to eat one)

Thank you!

Belladonna, I tend to agree that my fruits tend to belong in either the portrait or the figure section....they always remind me of someone.
Thanks for your nice comments.
