Red and Green Pear

Red and Green Pear / Bartlett pear
Oil on panel

Pears tend to be a theme repeated by me and, well many artists. Not sure what actually attracts artists to them; maybe it’s the organic shapes or variety of colors.

I have done several paintings of pears and have never been completely happy with any of them. Of the efforts, I am most pleased with this one. But I think it’s the background that really makes this painting, it gives a good sense of depth against the slight blush of the pear.

Thanks for looking.
