Gloria J Zucaro's "Plump & Juicy"


6" Square Original Oil on Raymar Canvas Panel

Why do painters love pears?! 
I am no exception.  They are so interesting in shape and a multitude of colors, too!
In this painting I used transparent colors for the block in, and tried a more impressionistic layer of color over that.  I love the way it turned out!  I used a flat bristle brush  for the whole painting.
This is my entry for this weeks Paint Party Friday.  Happy PPF! go see everyone's art work at

"Hello" to my fellow artists in The Artist's Playroom hosted by Jennifer Mclean.     This week the assignment is anything with a garden theme.
I love the vibrancy of pastel so decided to use them instead of my oils today.  Be sure to visit Jenn's site to see all the other artists' artwork.  The weekly challenge ends on Saturday.
Comments appreciated................Gloria

I am very late in entering my insect challenge into this weeks Daily Paintworks Challenge.
I chose this black grasshopper because when I was a kid and went to visit my father's parents' farm in rural Georgia, one of my favorite pastimes was to watch and catch these huge 2" long grasshoppers.  When they crewed the grasses, the liquid that came out of their mouths was reddish brown as if they were chewing tobacco.  Also Happy Paint Party Friday!

Gloria's Gone Missing

To my" I Am The Diva" pals...I love your tangle of the week, Laura.  I have had 3 weeks of different house guests(it seems to be feast or famine!) so have not done a single piece of art work in that time.  Am now suffering  with a bad cold with cough and with pink eye so can't see very well.  I hope to be back on track next week.  Have a good week everyone..

And the same to my Paint Party Friday pals and my The Artist Playroom Pals.  I hope to be back next week.
