"Siesta", 10x8"

I'm having so much fun with the "Destroy and Rebuild" technique that I learned from CW Mundy a while back, that I couldn't resist sharing it with my workshop students a week ago.  The Pencil and Palette Club in Huntley invited me to put on a workshop to explore new Impressionist approaches, and we covered a lot of ground!  This painting is a demo that I started in the workshop, then completed in my studio.  And now, it's on its way to Nantucket, and the East End Gallery!

I called it "Siesta" because it looks like the pear on the right decided to take it easy-- hmm, not a bad idea...
