This is my first painting of 2013. I painted it for my dear friend Elaine, who loves Bosc pears and apricots.

I am a Canadian artist. When I was younger, I drew a bit with pencil, charcoal, and oil pastels. I started painting in 2009 when I got the urge to play with colour. I took a few casual classes, but I haven’t painted long enough to feel like I know what I’m doing. Being part of the redbubble community encourages and inspires me to keep working at it. I never get tired of looking at the incredible variations of talent on display here in RB!
