Thanks for your response to the entry from the Sower Gallery. Here’s more. This one is also by Bob McLain, and a nice example of an artist’s versatility. As with all the art at the Sower Gallery, the backstory is presented along with the art itself.

Bob's Produce

Paris Market

When in Paris, France, we visited a large, organic, colorful, outdoor food market.   I took many reference photos and after getting home, started doing small studies of the fruits and vegetables.

To get everything in my painting, I decided to do a diptych – two pieces that work together and are strong enough to stand on their own.

The mediums used in this piece are acrylic paint and colored pencil on watercolor board. The pieces are sprayed with many coats of UV resistant clear acrylic coating for protection.

If you live in the area, please accept the invitation to stop by and enrich your day. The show will be up through March 20, 2016

    Beautifully executed

  2. These two paintings provide the striking, beautiful immage that faces the door as you enter the galery. We are so happy to have Bo’s work in the show.
