Here You Are: My Renoir

     There is a painting of two pears by the French artist, Renoir.  It is, to me, simple perfection.
     I used this painting as inspiration for today's photo challenge prompt: "fruit".  I staged the pears to resemble the painting and photographed them.  Then I used some fun filters in Photoshop to give it a canvas/painted look.

  1. Creative ... We have quite an artist in you :)
    I love the subtle shade differences that you have brought out so well. Keep it up.
    Warmest regards,

  2. Did you paint this?! This is SOOOOO good! Awesome job!

    1. Nooooo. Oh my gosh, I didn't mean to imply that I painted it. I photographed the pears then used some Photoshop filters to try and make it look like a painting. I changed the wording on my post so it hopefully makes more sense! :)

    2. Haha! Oh well its still SUPER awesome! Lol

  3. Catherine, this is beautiful! You did such a wonderful job, I am so is so pretty!
