Two Yellow Pears

I can't resist pears. I've painted green pears, yellow pears, red pears. They have such an attitude and personality. They cozy up together, stand alone, or try to take center stage. When you paint a group of pears, it's so easy to imagine their conversations. This is a small oil on canvas still life, 5" x 5", framed in an 1 1/2" simple gold frame. The pairs are nestled on an antique napkin that was passed down in our family. It has just a slightly scalloped edge and is a soft, off-white.

This would be very nice in a kitchen, pantry or dining area with it's warm, sunlit look. I will be creating an auction for this piece in a day or two.

  1. Just as you mention, I really enjoy the personalities of your pears. It's surprising how much of it they can have... when painted properly! Just excellent.
