Pears seem to be a favorite subject of mine, there is something about their shape and color that I find fun to paint. This painting was done about 15 years ago on a scrap piece of paper. It started out as a "practice piece", just a scribble to loosen up. It was a good thing I painted it on Wallis paper. Motto of the story: never paint even a scribble on bad paper, you never know when you'll get something good. Tiny as this is, it won a "Best in Show" ribbon that same year. I was so surprised, whodathunkit?
