Even though I didn't "finish" this painting, I liked how it looked anyway.

Pears in a Basket

5x7 oil on canvas

As a perfectionist, I was want to fuss over everything until it looks just right, but the book I am reading says not to fuss because it makes the colors look yucky--which I am finding to be true.  In an effort not to fuss, I decided that I am done with this one.  Maybe I will do it again rather than fuss till it's just right.
