These horses were having a good time at our friends farm and the day and light were so beautiful. I took a bunch of photos that day and this is the 5th one I’ve painted from. Some days the light is just extra paintable.

This painting is ready to frame. See a larger image here.

Pears with a View, 11×14 inch oil painting by Jessie Rasche

Thumbnail image for Pears with a View, 11×14 inch oil painting by Jessie Rasche January 23, 2016

My experiment of trying to use my round pointed portrait brushes as my main paint brushes for still lifes was really interesting. I disliked it!
