Pear on Blue

6" x 6" Oil on Canvas Panel
I enjoyed painting and eating this pear and am happy to say it tasted as good as it looked. Have you ever eaten pear butter? It is very much like apple butter but with it's own rich flavor. My mom has fruit trees on her property and last summer while visiting, my cousin Dean made pear butter. It was delicious! It is surprising how very popular the pear is as an object to paint. I hope you like mine.

Very nicely done, Doris :) I, too, am painting pears. They do lend themselves to artistic interpretation, don't they?

Hi Doris,

I think I based one of my paintings on one of your reference photos. Are you the dcglovier on If so it was a wonderful photo and I really enjoyed painting it.
