Pear Blossom


Pear Blossom : Acrylic on board (60x50cm)

I painted this in April when our pear tree was in glorious full bloom.



Detail



One of the few sprigs of blossom left clinging to a branch after a night of wind
and rain had scattered the petals like confetti.

Ciao Ruby, here in Italy is so hot and these thy works are a breath of fresh air!
Have a excellent weekend!

Truly lovely and fresh and sweet-scented; something like soda pop that contains bubbles of dreamy colors.
I can imagine how glorious your pear tree was in full bloom and inspired you a lot. The pristine white left clinging to a branch to the last looks good and goes very well with your work.

Here an unusual typhoon for this time of year hit western part of Japan and another one is being followed. I wish no serious damage. How is the weather at your part of the world now?

I do hope you got at least some set fruit from the blossom. It has been such a sad year for fruit trees. Our lovely Lord Lambourne (apple) is on it's last legs. The weather is just about finishing it off.

Your painting is gorgeous, I love the shapes in the tones and shades.
Thank you for you lovely comment on Dusk.

You are still making beautiful paintings I see. I haven't seen much flowers at my prune tree. We have such strange weather all the time, same as you I think. The -20 C last winter has damaged several trees in my garden.

Your art is so lovely, Ruby, and I think that this is a gorgeous representation of spring. I hold my breath to see what you have in mind for summer blooms...

Bises,

I saw pear flowers for the first time. No wonder you got inspired by them. The life of the flowers is transient, but, ruby, you make the glorious beauty eternal on this painting. I feel like that I’m seeing the sky, the green, the falling petals, and all the essence in the air though the white lacy flowers.

It is such a lovely painting, with the white behind the colours, like clouds, dreams, soft bursts of light. And the actual blossom looks so good against the background of your painted colours. Thanks for a lovely time yesterday

Pear is a kind of rose family? The flowers resemble cherryblossoms or plums. So I felt your work something like Japanese. They are beautiful like snow.
I knew the flower of pear is white for the first time.
Do such lots pear flowers fruit? If so, that's great.
Have lovely days!

Tiny and graceful flowers! I remember white Ume or Japanese apricot flowers.
The life of the flowers is transient, but the essence of their beauty and fragrance stays in your art forever. Here the best moment of them is captured. Pastel colored dots look like merciful rain drops falling over pear flowers. How beautiful!

Sarah,the pear tree does bear fruit,however this year because of strong winds in April only a few have formed.

I love the colours you've used - so precise, like the pink of the blossom stamens, and the way the shape of the flowers is the building block of the painting. Always exciting to come here and see what's new!
