Three Pears, Pastel, 5 3/4" x 8 1/2", painted on Wallis paper

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?
