Hello friends. I hope you had a nice weekend. I’m usually so excited to bring you fresh new printables yet today I’m a little hesitant. You see, last week I found several large sites carrying my designs without my consent and though (unfortunately) I’ve become accustomed to it, this time it just got to me. I guess I should look at it as the cliche ‘imitation is the sincerest form of flattery’ but it honestly doesn’t feel that way. It actually feels like they’re taking a little piece of my soul. I know that might sound dramatic but each time an artist creates, if you’re truly passionate about it, you put your heart and soul into each piece.
Needless to say, I become very protective of my art and don’t want to put anything out there and at the same time, I cannot and will not allow this to stop me from doing what I love. So here I am sharing with you this
vintage pear acrylic painting as a free printable.
It’s a little departure from my usual watercolor, but I love working with acrylic and I wanted to create something a little more ‘sophisticated’. So this is what I came up with. I hope you like it.
As usual, please know that this print is for personal use only and should not be altered or used for profit in any way. If you wish to share this with a friend, please provide them with the
link to this post. It means so much to me that you respect these rules. So thank you.
I’ve never had art in the back of the stove and so far it seems ok. I’m not too convinced that it can stay there long term without it getting greasy but it does look pretty there doesn’t it? ha
I took the glass off the frame so I could photograph it better and you can see the details on the pear. It actually looks more like pastel than acrylic doesn’t it?
Pastel is so much easier to blend so I think next time I will probably do that. I wanted this piece to look like an oil painting but I definitely need a little more work for that.
Thankfully, there a lot more printables below from my talented friends and I’m sure you will find one that suits your style the best.
Thanks to my friend Kristen for putting this hop together and THANK YOU for always being so supportive of me and my journey.
Sending you so much love,

The pear looks awesome!! You did great work
I cant get the download to work for some reason? thank you its beautiful
Thank you for this- I can’t wait to print and frame your beautiful painting! I’ve noticed that you don’t add your signature to your art? Also, is it ok to pin your free printables to my Pinterest board? I don’t want to do anything to cause the kind of issues you described.
Thank you for the printable. I’ve been looking for a print with these colors for a small spot in my kitchen. It is a shame that some people are taking advantage of your talent by passing it off as your own. What about signing your pieces?
I always look forward to reading your posts
I think you have an amazing talent and I am thrilled when you share and give us these presents. I hope you don’t stop but boy that is just so wrong that people think it’s ok to steal it and profit from your hard work.
It’s just beautiful, Lucy! I know how you feel, but so glad you didn’t let it stop you from sharing your talent with the world… 🙂
It’s absolutely stunning! Thank you so much!!
Thank you, Lucy, this pear art is lovely. Cheers, Ardith
So sorry your work has been stolen. This pear is so lovely; it just glows. Thank you

So beautiful Lucy! You always take the simplest things and turn them into amazing pieces of art!
Thank you for your generosity and talent, it is beautiful. Do you by any chance know the color of your frame…it looks greyish? Thanks again.
I guess some things to ask yourself would be, what would you have said if they’d asked permission? If it would have been ‘yes’ then maybe try hard to let it go as it eats at just your soul, not theirs, and only hurts you. They clearly don’t care… If you would have said no or said yes ‘only if ‘they acknowledged you or paid you or some other similar reply then isn’t there an avenue to sue them? I honestly don’t know the answer . . . You do stipulate restrictions when you share yet are the art pieces copywrited? I don’t know how that is all suppose to work legally – I mean beyond the supposed integrity of others not using your art for their own profit. Never-the-less, sorry to hear that has happened but I’m not surprised because you’re clearly so talented!

I’m so sorry to hear about you work being used without permission. You are a wonderful artist and that is bound to happen. I’m sooo glad that you haven’t let it change you. I’ve just moved abroad and yours is the only blog that I’ve kept up with. I haven’t even used a print out I just enjoy your work so much. You can tell your heart and soul is in it. I hope this comment lifts your spirit a bit!
I’m so sorry this keeps happening to you, Lucy. This vintage pear is gorgeous and it’s so brave to keep sharing your beautiful talent here.

Lucy! This blog just stopped me in my tracks! I have been keeping up to date through IG but I vow to come back to keep visiting this beautiful design sanctuary you created. Thank you!

I don’t know why this is necessary, earlier artists could draw without these programs at all. I can say for myself that it is better to think necessarily about how drawing used to be valuable, and now nothing at all with these applications. Frida Kahlo, for example, used to make real masterpieces. I looked at her painting collection the other day, it’s a marvel. You can read her biography here https://studydriver.com/frida-kahlo-essay/ to see what real painting is all about. I recommend it.
I was actually reading your article and found some interesting information. The thing is quite clear that I just want to thank for it.
That pear painting looks so beautiful. Amazingly classy and vintage look. I personally loved it!
