Red and Green Pear - SOLD

"Pear on a Dovetailed Box"

5"x 7" Oil on gessoed board.

I know, I know it's been done. But I had to put this beautiful and perfect pear on a pedestal. And I had to add a leaf - from another pear. The sad little pear with the leaf was small, spotted and not much to look at. I had picked it from a tree down the street from my home and taken some photos of it last summer. Little did it know at the time that it was to be sort of a body double for the real star someday and never make it all the way to the big stage.
