pear painting, triptych with texture

Have you ever had a disaster of a painting. One you spent hours fighting, and it just refused to work? The idea was good, the colour and values fine, but it just wouldn't gel...

I spent waaaaay too much time trying to fix this one, in the end in shear frustration I cut it up and remounted it as a triptych, now it works.

I like it so much I think I'm going to try a few more triptychs. I have a couple of art fair's in the offing, that I need some kick a$$ work for, and this just might fit the ticket! Ya gotta love it when the Phoenix rises, and brings a whole new perspective with it!

I'm calling it 'Pears N' Squares' (thanks Bob for the title), I forgot to photograph it before I took it to the gallery hence the cockeyed photo, it'll be part of the new show we're opening tomorrow, at the AGL.
