Pear Love Romance


Bartlett pears start appearing on the trees in mid August and share their sweetness into the fall season if stored well. This contemporary still life oil painting was inspired by two yellow pears that didn't last long, not because of storage, but because of flavor. They were devoured soon after their debut. As they tilted toward one another, it was as though they were in love. All that is left is this portrait of their torrid affair.  Reproductions of this oil painting that documents their brief affair are available at my website, or just click on the prints tab at the top of the page.
