La Perla before and after...

Originally uploaded by thenamewillcarry

This is the painting i've been working on this week. It's the biggest piece i've done so far, i think. It's 48x72 as you can see from the canvas tag... how retarded of me. It took me a while and i don't even know if it's finished. It's one of those things when you like what you have so far, it could be better, but you don't touch it because you think you'll ruin it. That's how i feel. It happens to me fairly often, so my solution is to let it be, for a while, hang it somewhere... see the reaction and then decide if i'll change it. For now, i'm putting it down and letting it be. hope yous like it!

The tango of the solitary pear

Originally uploaded by thenamewillcarry

I'm working with a friend, who is the head chef at Fratelli, in a new idea for the restaurant. They decided to make a 5 course meal using one vegetable or fruit. This happens every last friday of the month. This friday they want to use the pear. So this is the painting i did for this event. Last month was tomatoes. I did a painting for that too but i forgot to take a picture of it. So now i'm working on another painting for the restaurant that has nothing to do with pears. Just to hang there and make the place a little more inviting. It's a painting of la perla. Hopefully it'll turn out ok and i will post it here. For now enjoy the pear!!
