Re Posed

I'm always interested in the chiaroscuro effect of objects emerging out of the darkness. A great opportunity to find and lose edges.

Hi Brenda. I haven't been blogging around in awhile. Love this pear of yours. It just leap out at me!

Again very skillful work - I like a lot! It´s both - mystical and realistic - at the same time. Mystical dark (wonderful colour of blueberry) and fresh green together... yes, powerful shadows and lights!

Beyond The Parisian Masters

There was
Henri De Toulouse Lautrec
painting Jane Avril
and his many art posters
of the Moulin Rouge
and Folies-Bergère.
Then Édouard Manet painted his
A Bar at the Folies-Bergère.
Now Brenda Ferguson,
you paint a dancing pear.
Ah, the footlights are back
and the stage is lit in Maine.
Fun modern local version
of the old Parisian nightlife
now in your Dixmont studio;
your produce produces
fine art colors colored
with humor. Your pear
is cooking, Josephine.
Bake her.
